Due to the resounding success of the event last year, there will be
another US Special Day in addition to the BVZL Summit 2011. The US Special
Day, will be held at the Sofitel Munich Bayerpost as well on Wednesday, March
(9.00 am - 2.00 pm) and is an exclusive platform to discuss the latest
and important developments on the US life settlement market.

The conference chairmen and the two moderators, Dr. Jochen Russ (ifa -
institute for finance and actuary science) and Zohar Elhanani, (Legacy
Benefits / Co-Head of the BVZL US section), will host top industry experts at
the following panel discussions:

    - LE-Provider - Can we get better, if not best, LE-Practices?

    - Investor Roundtable: Lessons learned and future strategy!

The intention of these panel discussions is to learn more about the
historical development, the current status and the future of the asset class
of US life settlements, including the bad things, which happened, the
progress that has been made since then on various aspects and the challenges
still laying ahead of the industry. The panellists and the audience will
discuss and work on specific ideas and measures in order to improve the
public perception of this asset class and of the industry and to regain the
trust and reawaken the appetite of especially German and European investors
for US life settlement investments.

As a result of this US Special Day, BVZL would like to present a specific
action plan, which was developed and approved by the participants and then
should be implemented as quickly as possible.
