SAN DIEGO - July 1, 2009 - Further demonstrating the need for expert information on the life settlement market from both financial professionals and investors, this year's Life Settlement Awareness Month (LSAM)® garnered record participation.

Motivated by the benefits that life settlements can offer clients as well as investors, nearly 1,000 financial, investment, legal and actuarial professionals participated in the month-long educational series. Life Settlement Solutions, Inc. (LSS) - the founder and presenter of LSAM - reports not only greater attendance than in years past, but also a more diverse group of attendees. In this fourth year of LSAM, LSS responded to the growing demand and presented a more robust curriculum, including an investor track geared towards accredited investors and institutional buyers.

"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. "These results, coupled with a significant increase in investors who are investigating the asset class, reinforce that the long term industry demand and growth trends remain in tact despite the current financial crisis."

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.

Throughout June, LSS presented nine training courses and four panels of experts on topics including life settlement fundamentals, advanced case studies, and strategies for financial and insurance professionals. Also included in this series, was a three-part panel series geared toward investors that covered investor benefits, risks, structures, longevity, taxation, industry trends, distressed asset strategies and more.

All events are web-based and free to download. For more information on Life Settlement Awareness Month, or to access the resources, visit www.lifesettlementawarenessmonth.com. Contact Angie Robert at 858/576-8067 or arobert@lifefirms.com with questions or for more information.
