Death Bond

A death bond is a bond which is based on life settlements. Money borrowed through the sale of death bonds is used by the borrower (typically a life settlement fund) to purchase unwanted, transferable life insurance policies from policyholders. When the individuals insured by these life insurance policies die, the borrower collects the death benefits. The borrower compensates lenders who buy death bonds by paying them interest.
