Capture The Investment Potential Of Insurance

In building a profitable portfolio, smart investors spread their assets over a variety of investments to be able to benefit from the higher returns of equities and the safety of fixed income investments. This makes perfect sense because over the long term diversification has proven to be a prudent approach to successful investing. To their loss, some investors avoid investments that can deliver higher returns because they can't deal with the potential volatility. What they don't realize is that they are forfeiting the opportunity to grow their assets in a bid to protect themselves from possible loss.

One solution to this dilemma of growth versus safety is to incorporate insurance into your financial plans. Insurance policies can enable you to build or maintain your wealth, while limiting risk to your capital. This strategy can work especially well in later years when you need to protect your investments for today – and for your beneficiaries when you're gone.

Life insurance has often been overlooked as a source of investment opportunities. Now, especially with a rapidly growing retirement population, there's increasing awareness that some life insurance offerings are specifically designed with an investment and a life insurance component. In some cases, the investments that can be held have the potential to deliver higher returns than the more popular investment vehicles

These include guaranteed investment annuities (GIA), segregated funds and insured annuities. And with insurance, you also gain the benefit of arranging your affairs and selecting your investments to achieve certain desirable results for your estate on your death.
