Lifeline Capital Management, a fixed income alternative asset manager which purchases and manages portfolios of life settlements, has appointed William Ketterer (pictured) as chief investment officer CIO.
Ketterer, an expert in mortality and longevity risk and its impact on life settlement portfolio value, will oversee Lifeline Capital Management’s life settlement portfolios and work closely with provider company The Lifeline Program.
Most recently, Ketterer was the co-head of longevity products at Clarion Capital. Previously, he spent 10 years at KBC Financial Products in the insurance derivatives group, where he focused on policy and portfolio modelling and management of the firm’s USD6 billion life settlements portfolio.
“William Ketterer brings the highly technical and predictive approach to portfolio management that is critical in the life settlement industry,” says Wm Scott Page, CEO of Lifeline Capital Management. “He joins an experienced team, and we believe will prove invaluable to our company as we grow and expand.”
Ketterer earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Vermont and holds the Chartered Financial Analyst designation.
