Presentation Transcript
  • Capital Protection Fund (CPF) is Series A on the IDF Capital platform.
  • The first fund designed to take advantage of US regulations utilizing life insurance contracts purchased in the secondary and tertiary market.
  • Ensures tax compounding of gains and avoidance of withholding tax without the need to use offshore tax havens.
  • Advisors and investors are increasingly turning to this asset class to take advantage of predictable double digit returns and the capital security of this real asset.
  • CPF offers an exciting and genuinely new alternative to capital preservation.
performance index review
Performance Index Review
  • CSFB - the Investable Hedge Fund Index.
  • S&P 500 – the stock market index based on the market capitalizations of 500 leading companies publicly traded.
  • Barclays - the index measures the performance of the U.S. investment grade bond market.
  • AAP - the index tracks the performance of funds implementing an investment strategy in the US life insurance sector .
    • The AAP index indicates the lack of volatility of this sector.
    • Through the financial crisis the performance of the funds has been steady.
    • Given that many of these funds invested when prices were high the opportunity with prices at a low is clearly attractive.
why the capital protection fund
Why the Capital Protection Fund?
  • Life insurance contracts bought by the Fund are selected to run on average to more than 150% of the predicted life expectancy before eroding the principal amount originally invested.
  • Buying large numbers of policies spreads the risk of average predicted life expectancy being exceeded.
  • Returns are not eroded by taxes.
  • Investors time horizons meet those of the life insurance contracts purchased.
  • The Fund uses a simple and conservative valuation model that targets a fair return to all investors.
valuation model cont
Valuation Model (cont.)
  • A portfolio of policies has been modeled on a deterministic basis.
  • The model uses a risk adjusted initial valuation which provides a reserve.
  • The model assumes policies priced to provide a 12% growth rate in the fund. (BLUE line)
  • The purchase price of the policies is assumed to be 18%.
  • The reserve is the cash difference between those two prices.
  • The reserve is invested in policies. (GREEN line)
valuation model cont1
Valuation Model (cont.)
  • At approximately 7 years it can be seen that there is a value drop – the BLUE line.
  • This drop in value is at the point where the average life expectancy is assumed to have been lengthened.
  • The PURPLE line assumes the introduction of value from the reserve.
  • This gives rise to a smoother curve.
  • The model allows the manager to offset some or all losses when policies are sold and through active management of the underlying growth rate, reserves and maturities provide a fair return to ALL shareholders.

Why the Capital Protection Fund?

Leveraging a strong track record of investment in this asset class, the advisors to the CPF have created a fund which expertly combines:

  • A 10%+ target return per annum, which is consistent and realistic over the longer term.
  • Investment in a large portfolio of small face, secondary and tertiary life insurance policies.
  • Credit facilities that enhance the liquidity and flexibility of the fund, while providing the opportunity to improve fund returns.
  • Target minimum of 250 different policies within 18 months of launch.
market history
Market History
  • The secondary market for life insurance on Seniors emerged as a

serious business in 2002/3.

  • Before then the market existed by trading Viaticals – life insurance policies that relied on the Aids related phenomenon.
  • Since 2002/3 the market has grown considerably. It peaked in 2007/8 when contracts with a face value of circa $12b. were traded.
  • Since the financial crisis that number has reduced to circa $1.3 billion in 2011.
  • These numbers should be treated with caution as there is no recognized spot market though they do indicate the substantial and established nature of the marketplace.
press coverage
Press Coverage
  • “The increasingly popular practice of buying rights to older people's life insurance is risky, even downright perilous. People are living longer than actuarial tables say they should, and that is a problem, at least for the investor.”
  • “Wall Streets new Halloween trick...It’s a scheme based on the mundane (but huge) life insurance market. Wall Street intends to tap into the $26 trillion-worth of life insurance policies that Americans hold, using a financial mechanism called ‘life settlements’”
press coverage cont
Press Coverage (cont.)
  • Over the years the sector has received some bad press.
  • Fraud was an issue but with the development of regulation, best practice and transparent procedures, those entering into transactions today are better protected.
  • Almost all states now have regulations in place and understand the market.
  • Problems were made worse by a lack of knowledge and it has to be said, the pure greed of some participants.
  • As always confidence and security is derived by aligning yourself with the right principals and business partners.
so why invest in life insurance contracts
So why invest in life insurance contracts?
  • Life insurance contracts offer long-term growth potential that is generally not affected by interest rate movements, volatility in the equity markets, global events, exchange rates or economic downturns.
  • They can offer impressive returns which aren’t correlated to other asset classes.
  • Leveraging a strong track record of investing in this market, the principals behind the Capital Protection Fund have created a fund which expertly addresses the lack of liquidity, transparency and flexibility of many funds investing in this area.
the issues
The Issues
  • Premium Payments -Fund investments are being made on a quarterly basis providing useful cash flow. The Fund has bank facilities available for premium payment.
  • Manufactured Insurance Contracts -The Capital Protection Fund does not buy newly manufactured policies.
  • Late Maturities - The impact of late maturities can be reduced by purchasing small face value policies – in high volume.
  • Valuation Model - The valuation model used by CPF provides for risk adjusted, smoothed returns.
  • Liquidity - a part of the issue is the mismatch between the investment term of the fund and that of the investor. Life insurance contracts are NOT readily liquidated anymore than commercial or residential property. CPF deals with this by seeking to match the investor’s aims with those of the Fund itself.
