Co-Opt The Big Banks’ Secret Strategy
In this episode, John and his longtime friend and fellow financial advisor Barry Dyke discuss crony capitalism, the risks inherent in the market, and the secret that the big banks know but won’t tell you.
Don’t miss these takeaways:
- Low interest rates are forcing more people into the market in search of yield. Yet, the volatility of the market can destroy their retirement plan.
- The big banks won’t tell you that cash value life insurance is the most stable place to put your money—but that’s where they put theirs! Their tier one capital—their general fund—has to be in the safest place possible.
- In whole life insurance, the money grows tax-deferred, and the cash on the balance sheet can then be leveraged. The banks use it to loan out just about unlimited amounts of money.
- All of the biggest companies, from banks to media companies, are also turning to life insurance companies to manage their pensions because of the guaranteed payout.
- Whole life insurance provides guaranteed liquidity in the form of the death benefit. It’s a known number that’s going to be delivered on a certain date. When it comes right down to it, you have no idea about the value of any other asset on the date of death.
Whole life insurance has so many benefits: savings and inheritance strategies, a tax-deferred nature, stability, and predictability—all of which add up to a great foundation for your retirement plan.
