Borrowing Against Life Insurance vs Bank Financing
Why would I borrow against my life insurance instead of getting a regular loan?
You might be thinking, I could get a great rate from the bank because I have a good credit score. You might be right, but do you want to rely on that?
Let me propose this idea to you.
Back in 2008 when cash was tight for many people, banks had to tighten their lending standards.
Existing lines of credit (business and personal) for many people suddenly dried up. They were either rescinded or recalled. The banks took lines of credit back or shrunk available credit limits.
Think about the possibility of being in a position where your income was tight, or maybe you lost your business or lost your job, and you didn’t have that stream of income. In that position, the bank will now see you as being a significant risk and will not extend you those favorable loan terms.

Borrowing Against Life Insurance
The cash value of life insurance expands your options because you can borrow against your life insurance policies cash value. We use a specially-design life insurance contract that accelerates high early cash value. It gives you the ability to access that capital through a policy loan whenever you may need it.
It is important to note that because you’re not using your capital, but collateralizing it, you will continue earning uninterrupted compound interest even while you invest. That is what gives you returns in two places at once.
You don’t need a good credit score or have to prove that you have the income to repay the loan. There is no loan repayment schedule, meaning you decide how much you pay and when.
As valuable as a line of credit is, it can be taken away. However, the guaranteed access to your life insurance cash value gives you peace of mind.
If you’re in a position with no line of credit and no cash, you’re stuck in a cash flow crunch. Needing the capital but having nowhere to get it is a terrifying position to be in.
Instead, we want savings, money that is set aside for emergencies and opportunities. We want a place that earns a competitive return with uninterrupted compound interest, safety, and guaranteed access.
Borrowing against life insurance is ideal because it does not interrupt the compounding, and it’s safe and easily accessible.
