Life Insurance Settlement Association:

Established in 1994, the Life Insurance Settlement Association (LISA) is the oldest and largest trade organization serving the secondary market for life insurance. LISA educates consumers and financial advisors about options for unlocking the hidden value in life insurance policies. Over the Association’s 20 years, it has played a key role in developing legislation and regulations as the foundation for an open, transparent and competitive market for the transaction of life settlements. LISA’s mission is to promote the development, integrity, and credibility of the life settlement market, where consumer life insurance policyholders can choose to sell policies that are no longer needed, wanted, or whose premiums are no longer affordable.

A primary goal of the Association is to provide an awareness and education about a life settlement option to the 40+ million seniors over age 65 who own $1+ trillion face value of life insurance. We believe it is imperative that all seniors are aware their life insurance policy is personal property and of their right sell their policy if that serves the best interests of their financial needs.
