We are honoured to have been recognized by LSAM
for our accomplishments to date, and for our potential as we move forward, said Christopher J.
This is an industry of innovators, so choosing just a few of them to receive recognition is challenging," says Tracey Maconachie, President, LSAM.
The over 100 LSAM member companies can be grouped into three primary categories: agriculture and food products, health products and industrial bio-products.
With such a big range of businesses covered by life sciences our awards program is truly representative of the breadth and impact of this industry," says Earl Gardiner, Board Chair, LSAM.
We are so pleased at the number of professionals that participated in our LSAM events this year," said Larry Simon, president and CEO of LSS.
Simon added that LSS is dedicated to providing financial, insurance and investment professionals with free educational resources year-round, and will keep all recordings and presentation slides from this year's LSAM events on the resources page of the LSAM website through the end of July.
1 Attendance at certain LSAM
events is limited to "qualified institutional buyers" within the meaning of Rule 144A under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"), and "accredited investors" as defined in Rule 501(a) of Regulation D under the Securities Act.
While there have been significant changes to our industry since last year's LSAM, the fundamental benefits of life settlements to policy owners and investors remain in place.
This year, LSAM events include fundamentals and advanced strategies courses, and a panel on industry trends for financial and insurance professionals.
On the servicing side, ISGN has made its LSAMs
servicing system--acquired through Fair Isaac's mortgage division--available with a Web user interface, which saves costs for servicers.
Popular providers include Fiserv, McDonald Computer Corporation, ALLTEL, LSAMS and Excelis.
