A highly successful neurosurgeon and his neurosurgeon wife with high incomes, low expenses, and a rapidly growing net worth are looking to maximize their gifting credits while their children are young and don’t need the money currently. The insurance premiums will be gifted into an ILIT every year. This will help to pay estate taxes as well as give an alternative asset class as part of a holistic asset allocation.
The client is worried about his exposure to estate taxes later in life and a need to come up with liquidity to pay those taxes. In addition, he feels like he has no safe alternative places to invest money, the insurance gives him a non-correlated asset with a strong, safe, tax-adjusted rate of return.
Key points we have spoken about:
