WHY HAVE MY CURRENT ADVISORS NOT DISCUSSED USING CASH VALUE DYE INSURANCE AS A WEALTH BUILDING TOOL AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO 401(K) PLANS OR POST-TAX BROKERAGE ACCOUNTS?
If you’ll remember from the Foreword, I explained some of the problems in the financial services industry. Many Broker Dealers (the entity that most securities licensed advisors use to sell stocks and mutual funds through) forbid their licensed advisors from selling Equity Indexed Universal Life (EIUL) insurance policies.
Additionally, Broker Dealers do not like their advisors to use products that take money away from assets under management (which EIUL policies would certainly do if funded instead of 401(k) plans or post-tax brokerage accounts).
Couple the fact that most securities licensed advisors are not educated on Ern policies with the fact that many Broker Dealers forbid or strongly discourage the use of such products, and it’s no wonder that the vast majority of securities licensed advisors do not use EIULs or any kind of cash value life insurance as a protected and tax-favorable wealth-building tool.
This was the flaw in the financial planning area that cost millions of Americans billions of dollars when the stock market crashed in 2007-2009.
