New Breed of Life Insurance
Some investors require an income, particularly those in or nearing retirement. Many life insurance products pay out guaranteed cash value and/or non-guaranteed dividends and/or non-guaranteed bonuses from the policies. These are on top of the death benefits they provide to your family if you pass away, giving even more financial protection to you and your loved ones.
The old adage of not putting all your eggs in one basket has stood the test of time for a reason. The need to spread your portfolio across a range of assets can never be stressed enough. Life insurance sits alongside equity-like assets, bonds, cash, other fixed income instruments and alternatives as part of this balanced and holistic portfolio. A balanced portfolio is advised in all market conditions and for all types of investors, from novices to seasoned ones.
