PPLI Offers the Following Advantages
- Adds tax deferral
- Adds income, and estate tax benefits
- Adds dynasty tax planning opportunities
The assets inside a life insurance contract offer the advantage of growing tax-deferred in most jurisdictions throughout the world.1 This applies to PPLI policies as well, and in a properly constructed policy shields the assets from all taxes. In most cases, upon the death of the insured(s) under a contract of insurance, the death benefit is paid out free of tax.2
Whereas planning with just trusts and foundations offers only limited tax planning opportunities, Expanded Worldwide Planning (EWP) offers a powerful Tax Shield. Adding a PPLI policy held by the correct entity in the proper jurisdiction creates an extraordinary dynasty planning opportunity.3
