WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The November 6th Fasano Longevity Conference included controversial presentations on the Impact of Trump's Tax Policies and costly pricing mistakes seen in the Life Settlement Market.
Washington tax expert, Eugene Steuerle, keynoted the morning session with his analysis of the long term increase in the federal deficit expected to result from President Trump's proposed tax changes. He was followed with a sobering presentation by Demeter Capital's James Rouse that exposed significant pricing errors being made by life settlement investors who overestimate expected mortality at older ages.

The afternoon sessions included two featured speakers: Dr. Robert Shavelle, who presented his research on the Impact of Functional Status on Life Expectancy in Cerebral Palsy, Traumatic Brain Injury and Stroke; and Dr. John Rogers, whose presentation on Soft Electronics for the Human Body covered groundbreaking work that he and his colleagues at Northwestern University have accomplished in developing the next generation of wearable devices. The afternoon agenda also included an analysis by Dr. Daniel Bauer's of Selection in the Structured Settlement Market and an eye opening presentation by cyber expert, Brian Finch, on Cyber Threats in the Workplace.
