Private placement life insurance (PPLI) was once the exclusive domain of wealthy investors willing to tackle the logistical challenges of the offshore insurance market. The investment portfolio, tax, and estate-planning applications, and ongoing investment potential of these policies made the effort worthwhile. In recent years, though, a number of U.S.-based insurance companies have developed similar policies that meet all U.S. insurance, investment, and tax regulations.
PPLI is becoming a fundamental component of effective tax, trust, and estate planning, but few sources have been available to detail the best practices—until now. The PPLI Solution can serve as a resource for effective execution. Written by leading practitioners, the book will position advisers to capitalize as PPLI expands further into the high-net-worth market and becomes available to individuals with an investable net worth as low as $1 million.
Few investors—whatever their net worth—will want to venture into the PPLI market without guidance. The PPLI Solution addresses the needs of investment managers, consultants, attorneys, and accountants who want to achieve the broad understanding of PPLI's applications required of those providing advice. It can serve as an authoritative source for anyone—including investors—seeking to know more about PPLI’s nearly perfect tax efficiency, solid creditor protection, and powerful means of creating wealth.
