Blog 81 -Thanksgiving And The Spirit Of Gratitude

Neither Isis, nor I were born in the USA. Isis came to the U.S. as a young child and I as a young adult both fleeing Communist Cuba to legally come to the USA in search of freedom. We both learned very quickly what Thanksgiving and the spirit of gratitude really meant. For Isis back then, it meant being grateful to the nuns that took her in and cared for her while she waited for her parents to come from Cuba. For me, it meant being grateful to a school that opened its doors to me and gave me an Ivy League education.

Blog 80 – The Design Of Infinite Banking Policies

The design of high cash value, dividend paying whole life insurance policies, or Infinite Banking (IBC) policies, has two phases. The first phase consists of policy blending, heavy use of paid-up additions, and the typical 10/90 or 20/80 split between the premium going to the base whole life policy and the premium going to the paid-up additions rider. This first phase is quite consistent from case to case and the only variability might be in the premium split due to the total amount of premium (annually or monthly) to be paid, and design restrictions from the insurance company we are using.

Blog 74 – Why Doesn’t Everyone Practice The Infinite Banking Concept (IBC)?

Some people are doing quite well financially, and they feel that what they are doing is working fine for them. They have the mistaken opinion that since they feel they are doing well, there is no room for improvement, or to try something they may not be familiar with.

Blog 73 – Short-Term Versus Long-Term Cash Values In IBC Policies.

Why do the premiums paid exceed the cash value during these first years? Well, it is due to the initial costs of setting up the death benefit and the compensation paid to the financial professional who designs, sells, and will service the policy for years to come. This is what Nelson Nash calls “the capitalization phase of the policy”. Insurance companies call this initial cost, acquisition cost.
