Life Shares™ is a partial interest in a privileged investment vehicle called a life settlement.
The life settlement asset class came into existence over 100 years ago, but has only been available to institutional and ultra high-net-worth investors. As a result of recent legislation, however, it is now accessible to California residents who qualify.
"Smart money" investors including Wells Fargo, Merrill Lynch, and Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway have quietly placed billions of dollars into life settlements because they offer superior return potential with minimal volatility and no downside risk. Through Life Shares, individuals can now share in the profitability and peace of mind that top investment firms have enjoyed for decades.
As investors continue to search for both safety and yield, many are discovering life settlements. Life Shares allow qualified investors to own fractional shares of life settlement assets, similar to buying shares of stock in a publicly-traded company.
