Lower Tax Obligations

Lower Tax Obligations

Private Placement Variable Life Insurance (PPVL), when combined with non-traditional investment options such as hedge fund strategies, offers a unique solution for high-net-worth and corporate clients seeking investment options with favorable tax structuring.

Hedge fund investing typically carries high tax obligations. Private placement insurance is a unique way to structure a life insurance policy so that experienced investors can pursue the benefit of high-yield investments with significantly lower tax obligations. The cash growth on universal life insurance policies is not taxed, providing an obvious benefit to the policyholder.

Private Placement Insurance is currently only available to high net worth individuals who are accredited investors and have sufficient income to maintain the fund. This higher bar for access means that purchasers can access institutional pricing for this unique and tax-beneficial financial product. A PPVUL policy maintains the same basic structure as traditional variable life insurance, including separate account protection, state-regulated policy forms, and tax qualification.
