The Institute for International Research (IIR) will host an International Life Insurance and Annuity Products Conference on November 15 – 16, 2001 at the British Colonial Hilton in Nassau, Bahamas.

During the two-day forum, top industry experts will address participants on key regulatory changes and up to the minute product development and marketing initiatives. Presentations will cover life insurance and annuity products which are geared towards servicing the wealth preservation needs of the global high net worth client, and the precautions necessary in order to continue building such product platforms.

Also on the agenda will be how the business interactions of offshore insurers have been affected by various international developments relating to money laundering and due diligence procedures.

A pre-conference workshop on “Integrating Domestic and International Private Placement Life Insurance into High Net Worth Planning” will present the nuts and bolts of how and why major institutions are entering the private placement arena. This special workshop also will include building strategic alliances and executing a successful marketing plan for international life and annuity products.

The Conference is expected to attract industry-wide senior management, particularly those with responsibility for new product development and marketing, offshore annuity and life distribution, investment management for offshore structures, international estate and trust planning, wealth management services, offshore life and annuity compliance and legal issues.
