More than $7 billion in transactions related to life insurance-linked securities (life ILS) were completed in 2010, and the market saw a number of additional life capital market transactions as well.

The move toward principles-based reserves, the introduction of term universal life products, and Iowa's new collateral regulations are other issues to watch in 2011.
