Vida Capital invests in longevity-contingent assets, which include, but are not limited to, life settlements. The company is one of the most active and respected investment managers in its space with over $1 billion of policy face value under management. With low correlation to other asset classes, life settlements have the potential to deliver appealing risk-adjusted returns. Vida Capital is headquartered in Austin, Texas and was founded in July 2009 by Jeff Serra and Austin Ventures. Vida has a professional staff of 35 with a senior team with over 100 years of collective experience in longevity assets.
In 2010, Magna was acquired by Vida Capital Inc, a leading asset manager in the longevity space. Magna has been active in the life settlement industry since 2004 and was the top ranked life settlement provider in 2013 and 2014 by capital deployed. Many of Vida’s competitors must contract out their sourcing and underwriting to third-party vendors. Vida’s integration with Magna provides the opportunity to participate in secondary market transactions and delivers confidence to Vida and its investors that each policy is thoroughly analyzed and vetted prior to its acquisition.
