Q Capital Strategies’ President and CEO, Steven Shapiro, will be speaking on a panel at the 16th Annual Life Insurance Settlement Association (LISA) Fall Conference in Miami.  The conference runs from November 10-12.  Mr. Shapiro will be speaking on the topic  “The Changing Investor Landscape:  From Death Bonds to Congress and Beyond” on November 12th at 9:45am.  The panel will discuss the issues related to the changing profile of the investors in the life settlement asset class over the years, particularly in recent months as more large institutional investors are looking for ways to increase investment yields without increasing risk profiles.  “We have seen stories all over the news in recent months about large institutional investors – whether it be private equity firms or pension funds – looking for opportunities in the life settlement asset class,” said Shapiro.  He added, “in today’s challenging marketplace, it is important to take stock of where we are, where we have been, and where we need to go for the industry to thrive and grow beyond anything we have previously seen.”  More than 200 attendees are expected to turn out and learn about the latest trends in the life settlement marketplace.
