Lighthouse Life Capital LLC, a U.S. life settlement company and sponsor of non-traded alternative investments, has hired two veteran external wholesalers: Kurt Gunderson as regional sales director for the western region, and Eric Kellar, regional sales director for the east.
Gunderson brings more than 25 years of experience specializing in advisory services and financial planning. Before joining Lighthouse, he spent nearly six years as a managing director at S2K Financial. He previously held positions at Mutual of America, Ameriprise, Investment Centers of America, and DA Davidson. He holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Dickinson State University, as well as FINRA Series 7, 24, 63, and 66 securities licenses.
Kellar, a 25-year asset management and insurance veteran, comes to Lighthouse from eFinancial, where he was an external wholesaler, and has previously served in senior sales positions at Wellesley Asset Management, Morningstar, and John Hancock Funds. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Bates College, an MBA from Suffolk University, and FINRA Series 6, 7, and 63 securities licenses.
“Kurt and Eric bring a wealth of experience to Lighthouse,” said Petersen. “They are both respected professionals in the insurance and financial services industries with a successful track record of cultivating meaningful partnerships with firms and advisors.”
Lighthouse Life Capital operates as the distributor of the $50 million Reg A+ Beacon Bonds, launched in February 2021, with International Assets Advisory LLC serving as the managing broker-dealer. According to the company, investment proceeds are primarily used to originate and acquire life insurance policies for the sale of those policies to investors seeking non-correlated assets for their portfolios.”
Lighthouse Life works with financial professionals – including insurance agents, financial advisors, accountants, and others – who advise and assist policy owners with the sale of life insurance policies.
