Are Your Company’s Current Investments Available Tax-free

A common misconception is that ICOLI (Insurance Company-Owned Life Insurance) is just a general account investment.  It is not. Traditional market traded investments are available within an ICOLI wrapper – likely, some that you already own.

There are several hundred available investments within ICOLI. Here’s a partial list of available fund managers:

Investments within ICOLI grow tax-free and carry a significantly lower RBC charge. Placing your investments within an ICOLI wrapper can increase the velocity of your portfolio’s potential growth.

The result: more of your portfolio is in the investments you want, and the yield is tax-free.
