Insurance Company-Owned Life Insurance (ICOLI): Better Yields with Tax Advantaged, Low Risk-Based Capital Investment Options



Insurance Company-Owned Life Insurance (ICOLI): Better Yields with Tax Advantaged, Low Risk-Based Capital Investment Options

May 2020

The amount of global government debt trading at negative yields has swelled, reflecting global economic uncertainty and other concerns. The current COVID-19 crisis has only exacerbated this challenge. Insurance companies are distinctly challenged in a low-yield environment, given their typically high fixed income allocations, significant industry regulations, and liability-driven cash-flow needs.

To solve these issues, a growing number of insurance companies are implementing Insurance Company Owned Life Insurance (ICOLI) strategies for risk-based capital and tax purposes. Join our webinar for an overview of the benefits of ICOLI including:

• Open architecture investment menu (Schedule D, Schedule BA)
• Review of capital charges (5% for P&C and Health, 0% for Life)
• Favorable tax treatment
• Due diligence and regulatory guidance
• Stable value wrap strategies
