The Legacy Builder Strategy allows optimization of any excess capital or cash flow not required for a family’s immediate needs to leave a much larger benefit for your clients heirs and personal causes.

How the strategy works

The strategy leverages the strengths of permanent life insurance, including the immediate creation of a large, tax-free, estate benefit.

If your client chooses a policy that has a cash value component, the strategy may also use the tax-sheltered accumulation of cash value within an exempt policy.
