Recent London School of Business Study Validates the Concept

Crown Alliance Capital (OTCBB: CACL) a senior life settlement company was pleased to see the recent report done by The London School of Business for Coventry confirming the benefits for both policy owners and investors of the new secondary market for life Insurance Policies, confirming the validity of Crown Alliance’s basic business model in the Life Settlement Market. The study also renders support to the belief that life settlements are a responsible way to benefit not only the original policy holders, but also investors in this uncorrelated asset class. The study showed that policy owners in the sample received as a group $3.11 billion in the sale of their policies. This was 4 times the amount that would have been received than if the policies had been surrendered to the insurance company. The policies had a total benefit upon maturity of approximately $24 billion US Dollars. Thus, the life settlement process has proven to be a huge benefit to both policy holders and investors alike. Lorraine Fusco, CEO of Crown Alliance Capital said: “With increased regulation, stringent guidelines and new mortality tables, the market is set to show steady positive growth. This study validates our belief that we offer a secure investment and an uncorrelated rate of return.” Crown Alliance is a senior life settlement company focusing on polices that will render an IRR of at least 14%. Mrs. Fusco explained further: ” we continue to move forward on the completion of our due diligence process on the purchase of a $50 million face value portfolio. This custom built portfolio is the next step in our plan to ensure the best and most stable return possible for our shareholders.” About Crown Alliance Capital Limited Crown Alliance Capital Limited (OTCBB: CACL) is a publicly reporting Corporation, formed in March of 2010 with the intention of acquiring senior life settlement policies. The company targets and acquires mainly universal life insurance policies that are no longer desired by individuals in order to build a large portfolio of policies that meet a rigid selection process. By becoming the owner/beneficiary of the policies and maintaining the premiums, Crown is able to obtain a substantial return on investment when each death benefit is ultimately paid.

EPA Report Details How Development Can Impact Public Heal...

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recently released its most comprehensive review to date on how the built environment – the way we build our cities and towns – directly affects our environment and public health. The report was announced by EPA Acting Administrator Bob Perciasepe during a national Twitter Town Hall meeting in Washington, DC with Maurice Jones, Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing, and Development (HUD), and John Porcari, Deputy Secretary of the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). The publication, Our Built and Natural Environments: A Technical Review of the Interactions among Land Use, Transportation, and Environmental Quality, provides evidence that certain kinds of land use and transportation strategies – where and how we build our communities -- can reduce the environmental and human health impacts of development. “Although findings might differ on the magnitude of the effects of different practices, the evidence is overwhelming that some types of development yield better environmental results than others,” the report asserts. “This report will be useful for communities across the country looking to make smart development decisions,” said EPA Acting Administrator Bob Perciasepe. “Whether it’s housing, transportation, or environmental issues, this report can help communities protect public health and the environment by avoiding harmful development strategies.” The publication is important and timely because population growth and demographic changes will substantially alter the way our nation is developed over the next half century and beyond. “Researchers have estimated that as much as two-thirds of the development that will exist in 40 to 45 years does not exist today,” the report states, “meaning that decisions we make about how and where that development occurs could significantly affect our health and the health of the environment.” The report, the second edition of a popular document published in 2001, summarizes trends in land use, buildings, travel behavior, population growth, and the expansion of developed land. It then discusses the environmental consequences of these trends, such as habitat loss, degradation of water resources and air quality, urban heat islands, greenhouse gas emissions and global climate change, and other health and safety effects. Environmental impacts linked to building and development patterns include: At least 850,000 acres of lakes, reservoirs, and ponds and 50,000 miles of rivers and streams are thought to be impaired by stormwater runoff. Although technology has reduced per-car vehicle emissions, an approximate 250-percent increase in vehicle miles travelled since 1970 has offset potential gains. Transportation is responsible for 27 percent of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions; residential and commercial buildings contribute 18 percent and 17 percent, respectively. The report concludes by describing ways to reduce such effects. Strategies include safeguarding sensitive areas; focusing development in built-up areas and around existing transit stations; building compact; mixed-use developments; designing streets that are safe for all users, including walkers and bikers; and using green building techniques. Through the federal Partnership for Sustainable Communities, EPA, HUD, and DOT coordinate federal investments in infrastructure, facilities, and services to get better results for communities and use taxpayer money more efficiently. Perciasepe, Jones, and Porcari held the town hall to commemorate the fourth anniversary of the HUD-DOT-EPA Partnership for Sustainable Communities and talk with communities about how the federal government can be of assistance.
