Global Strategies

Benefits of an Insurance Portfolio Review

Life insurance products are complex financial instruments that need to be actively managed. FOXROC operates with the understanding that an insurance product’s performance must be measured continuously and not just at policy issuance. This commitment to in-force policy management is a distinguishing factor from our competitors, and it ensures that our clients are maximizing the economics of their premium dollars.

The Uniform Prudent Investor Act (UPIA), which has been widely adopted throughout the U.S., gives a fiduciary duty to trustees not just with investments, but also any life insurance products held in Trust. As such, legal judgments are measured by death benefit, not account values. In response, FOXROC assists trustees in developing a process to manage Trust Owned Life Insurance (TOLI).

Advantages of U.S. Life Insurance Products

  • Lower annual costs for exact same coverage.
  • More carrier and product availability.
  • Death claims will be paid out.
  • Policies can not be rescinded after 2 years.
  • Larger capacity. (U.S. carriers can and will issue policies in excess of $7.5-million).
  • U.S. dollar is considered safe and more stable, both politically and economically.
  • Fewer privacy and confidentiality concerns.
  • Acts as a specific tax-advantaged asset.
  • Provides asset diversification within any investment portfolio.
  • Non-U.S. citizens can constructively own a U.S. policy without U.S. Estate Tax inclusion and obtain tax-free cash value accumulation, tax-free loans, and tax-free death benefit.

Examples of a Valid U.S. Nexus

  • Have a bank account in the U.S.?
  • Own real property or a residence in the U.S.?
  • Have significant, systematic ongoing legal business in the U.S.?
  • Own a business that is located in the U.S.?
  • Maintain an investment within the U.S.?
  • Have a beneficiary located within the U.S.?
  • File a U.S. tax return?
  • Have a U.S.-based Trust?
  • Work for a multinational corporation with a U.S. office?
