WP90X – Rethinking Asset Location: Mitigating Income Tax Drag with Private Placement Life Insurance and Annuities


Ben Rainey

Aidan Elliott


Taxes are most likely going to increase for high net worth individuals and those clients are looking  to you for creative yet proven strategies for income tax relief. Frequently unknown and  misunderstood, Private Placement Life Insurance (PPLI) offers a powerful, yet simple solution to  income tax mitigation and brings with it decades of tax-law precedent. Recent regulatory and  product changes have made it even more attractive to UHNW individuals and family groups. Join  Ben Rainey and Aidan Elliott of WealthPoint on this Zoom webinar to learn how PPLI can  eliminate all income taxes from a portion of your client’s investment portfolio while not  changing the investment strategy or asset allocation and still maintaining access to those  funds. Ben and Aidan will examine several client scenarios and illustrate first-hand the powerful  impact of tax mitigation on a client’s balance sheet. 

Session Overview

Join Ben Rainey and Aidan Elliott of WealthPoint for this 90-minute presentation as they discuss the  recent evolution in the ever-changing Private Placement Life Insurance and Annuity market. Ben  and Aidan will briefly review the basics of Private Placement products and their utility. Attendees  will discover why the traditional model of delivering Private Placement Life Insurance and Annuities  through Insurance Dedicated Funds is less valuable to today’s UHNW clients and family groups.  Additionally, Ben and Aidan will share about the recent advancements that now afford advisors the  ability to manage client assets through an SMA on a tax-deferred and tax-free basis leveraging any  asset available on their custodian platform.
