Victoria Life Insurance News

Sasha Zhang of CF Canada Financial, a notable life insurance advisor who specializes in structuring high dividend life insurance policies and yielding high cash value, believes that an age-old life insurance policy could be a tax haven. Zhang claims that she makes millionaires. Although Zhang’s statement is rather provocative, she used an illustration from a life insurance company that has been paying an average of 8.4% policy over the past 25 years. If you invest $20,000 per year for eight years in your 21-year-old son’s life insurance policy, he will have one million dollars in cash value and two million dollars in estate (a tax-free death benefit) by the age of 65. Since this policy belongs to you, you can access the cash in the form of a policy loan during your lifetime. An interesting feature of this type of asset is that it can serve as a collateral and its value will increase even if the loan is outstanding, said Zhang. When asked why a lot of people do not know this strategy, Zhang said it is due to two factors. The first is that the investment advisers at your local bank may not be licensed for life insurance and therefore may not be to sell the product and secondly, a lot of life insurance agents do not have expertise in this type of planning. Another clever approach is to own several life insurance policies for yourself, your children and grandchildren. This makes it easy to create a family life insurance trust that facilitates wealth transfer. It also makes it possible to plan your estate with named beneficiaries and easily grow your coverage.
