The stock market is uncertain. Often net losses exceed net gains. So-called traditional safe investments—CDs, treasury bonds, municipal bonds and the like—offer only paltry returns.
Is there an investment that can match the potential high returns of successful stock market investors, yet has the prime characteristic (no-risk) of traditional safe investments? Yes!
What is the investment? Life settlements. Often called Transferable Insurance Policy or TIP(s). The best way to understand how a TIP (TIPs is plural) works is by an example.
EXAMPLE: Joe, 68 years old, owns a life insurance policy with a $500,000 death benefit and a $60,000 cash surrender value (CSV). Joe would like to stop paying premiums. Of course, he can cancel the policy and get the $60,000 CSV from the insurance company.
An investor (really a group of investors) buys Joe’s policy for $150,000… paid in cash to Joe immediately. The investors now own the policy. The investors will receive the $500,000 death benefit when Joe dies.
Let’s say you are one of the investors. You invest $100,000. You will wind up with a diversified portfolio of TIPs. One of the TIPs will be a fractional interest in Joe’s $500,000 policy, say 3% or $15,000.
This TIP (Joe’s) will pay you exactly $15,000 (includes your principal—amount invested—and profit) when Joe dies. The insurance companies love people like Joe when they terminate their policies. And why not. The insurance company pays a mere $60,000 for the CSV and is off the hook for a $500,000 death benefit.
Terminated policies are highly profitable for insurance companies. Of course, they want to keep the entire life settlement industry a secret. Why? Because investors—like you—now have found a simple and easy way to help the Joes of the world and at the same time stand tall in the profit shoes of the insurance companies. Neat!
As a TIP investor, you can enjoy: an average rate of return of 16.28% per year; not worrying about the market being volatile or whether it goes up or down; the guaranteed return of your principal, as well as your profit and best of all, keep 100% of the profit because there are no fees or costs when you buy a TIP.
There are only two simple rules: 1) The tax on your profit is deferred until you actually receive your principal and profit; 2) Your profit is taxed as ordinary income.
