In recent years, the market for Private Placement Life Insurance (PPLI) Investment Accounts has grown rapidly. PPLI Investment Accounts offer the ability to invest in a tax-exempt environment, and the value proposition is a simple one: the cost of a PPLI Investment Account is lower than the cost of taxes that would otherwise be payable on realized investment gains. There are now over 400 registered funds (traditional asset class) and over 225 non-registered funds (alternative asset class) that can accept allocations from PPLI Investment Accounts. In addition, for a large account, the client can have a Registered Investment Advisor firm of their choice manage the PPLI Investment Account assets. This session will provide an overview of PPLI Investment Accounts, and will cover the tax and structural attributes, the economics, and the key applications for high-net-worth families.
