    The Moss Point Approach


    Viatical Settlements

    We target very specific policies – those of people with medical conditions and a documented life expectancy of 30 months or less. To us, it’s not about a person’s edge, it’s about a person’s health.


    The Model

    We have invested heavily in our “MPF Maturity Model” to predict life expectancy of individual policies with greater accuracy than what can be achieved using industry-standard actuarial data


    Selectivity and Intensive Diligence

    Actuarial data is very accurate, but it is also riddled with assumptions – classifying individual conditions very broadly. Moss Point never makes an investment decision before its in-house physicians have carefully evaluated the individual medical records of each policy.



    Portfolios are actively managed by proven investment professionals to optimize exposures.
