Essentially, the seller of the rights gets quick funds, and the buyer of the insurance policy will get an even larger amount on the death of the insured. To get a better understanding for life settlements, you have to take a deeper look into the life insurance settlement history. The life settlement ... market research, surveys and trends
Weird Investing: Profiting on Death | MintLife Blog | Personal ...
Investing isn’t always pretty. While we tend to think of winning investments in terms of soaring stocks, that’s hardly the only way to get returns. Short selling, for instance, enables investors to profit from declines in a company’s share price. Commodity speculators can earn terrific returns when oil prices skyrocket. Neither short sellers nor commodity speculators are particularly well-liked by the public, but yet another group seems to be even more vilified: those investing in so-called viatical settlements. Simply put, a viatical settlement investor buys someone’s life insurance policy and profits in ... market research, surveys and trends

Historically, some insurance companies have offered an accelerated death benefits option which allows the insured an opportunity to receive up to 80% of the death benefit at any time within the last year of their projected life. The remaining 20% is then paid to the insured's estate.

Life & Health Insurance: Universal Life Ins. Surrender Value ...
Am I thinking correctly in deciding to keep a policy in force now that the surrender value is slowly going away?  I bought a single pay UL policy from Jeff. Pilot in 1991 for $80M, face amount of $600M.  The surrender value is now approx. $100M and going down.  The guaranteed interest rate is 4.5%.  Unless I make premium payments, the policy is estimated to last until I am 72 years old, I am 64.  My heart surgery 12 years ago will probably not allow a new policy.  I have no debt and don't need the $100M.  I am thinking that the $600M is valuable to my family in case of my untimely demise. ...
