The life settlement industry: Down but not out.

Keeping with a four-year tradition, the number of transactions in the life settlement industry declined in 2012, with the total face value of policies purchased cut in half.

That’s according to a recent report by The Deal, TheStreet’s institutional business research arm. Its annual life settlement report states that the number of transactions fell by 11.8 percent to 1,187 in 2012 from 1,346 in 2011, while total face value of policies sold declined sharply to $2.12 billion from $5.06 billion.
