Building Wealth with Private Placement Life Insurance

Private Placement Life Insurance (PPLI) is one of the most significant wealth-building and generational wealth transfer strategies available to highly affluent investors today.

PPLI is a variable life insurance structure that provides accredited investors access to alternative investments and then capitalize on the tax-deferred treatment of income and gains for otherwise tax-inefficient strategies.

A PPLI policy enables investors to purchase life insurance at relatively low cost, with institutional pricing. Investors can then allocate most of their premium in a diversified portfolio of Insurance Dedicated Funds (IDFs) for tax-deferred compounding and long-term growth.


Access Alternatives with Insurance Dedicated Funds

Insurance Dedicated Funds (IDFs) provide accredited investors access to an array of otherwise tax-inefficient private funds within a tax-advantaged life insurance structure.

An IDF is a fund created by a manager (generally an alternative asset manager or hedge fund manager) that receives investor subscriptions from the segregated asset accounts of insurance carriers that offer private placement life insurance (PPLI) policies.

IDFs are designed to provide PPLI policyholders with the differentiated return streams of private and alternative funds coupled with the favorable tax treatment of insurance products.


Compound Your Returns with Collateralized Loan Obligations

Collateralized Loan Obligations, or CLOs, represent a portfolio of floating-rate, senior secured bank loans. Senior, secured, first lien loans benefit from priority of payment over other creditors and equity holders in a company's capital structure.

Floating-rate loans provide investors with increasing interest payments amidst rising rates. CLOs provide this exposure in a leveraged, highly efficient format.
