A life settlement policy is a life insurance policy that has been sold or settled and turned over to a life settlement provider. This transaction can provide many benefits to the policy owner. The policy owner can access capital and reduce overall costs associated with premiums.
Once the transaction is completed, the life settlement policy also allows investors access to an asset class that is non-correlated to equity markets. This allows the investor to reduce overall volatility within their investment portfolio but also capture significant returns.
While much is said to policy owners about the upside of completing the life settlement policy process, there are downsides to consider. The policy owner should be made aware of all possibilities. If the advisor you are working with is not discussing any possible downsides, you may want to be cautious. With knowledgeable and professional advisors such as those with PolicySettlement.com, you can feel confident in your decision to consider a life settlement transaction.
The major downside of a life settlement, is the loss of potential death benefit. With your advisor, you must determine if a settlement is advantageous as opposed to keeping your policy and continuing premium payment, if that is the case.
