Stocks up as a nervous about -- so let's come up with something else until my next guest did he is recommending a new way to get yields.
By using life insurance as an asset class sort we're explained how this works because Adam Sherman is here he's the CEO -- First trust financial resources he advises.
High net worth clients worth -- millions and millions of dollars he's joining me now.
In a Fox Business exclusive I'm fascinated to see what the wealthy are doing just a step ahead because of managers like you coming up -- these -- it's.
Well thanks pretty invite list.
We we have clients are using insurance in different ways now of these -- though.
It's very easy to to to talk about interest rates we know money markets or zero in the ten years 17 B and CDs -- 2% off it's nothing it's depressing so we're looking at fixed income alternatives right now and we're talking primarily life insurance is a death benefit were convincing clients to.
Move a portion of their dorm in cash into permanent insurance contracts to get significant yield.
Enormously significant four to 6% -- mortality so is that a -- -- alternative.
And cash -- cash if you're holding for fifteen or twenty years we think the yields now can get up to three or 4%.
So -- talked about this five or six years ago no obvious in talking about it but in today's environment as are attractive -- Walk us through this so let's explain it because people here life insurance and I think what I get paid off when I die somebody else gets the money you're saying no we could get some deals out of this.
Let's use for example a forty year old man -- -- A cat so forty year old individual once a million dollars of permanent coverage and let's say the premium is eight to 101000 dollars based on their their health obviously.

The yield can be anywhere between three to four -- half percent depending on the results of the underlying insurance company is their vesting period to I have to be in for certain amount of time -- And survive that accident you start getting -- I prefer not to go down the mortality road but assuming that we have a fifteen year window which we think is is inadequate period for life insurance the three to afford half percent return has been consistent during this -- interest rate environment we've been.
Wonder -- starts in money kicked him.
Really day one those policies are accrediting accounts you're not going to be into it for -- 24 month period.
But if you need to take a contractual loan to get access to your money that's easy to do when there's not a tax effect by doing that either.
And you're saying that shouldn't be a major part of the portfolio probably about ten to 15% but then the question becomes.
What is the insurance company -- -- it's a great question me so far the industry's had a lot of integrity or -- 150 years anytime and a death claim has been presented it's always been monitored by the industry even -- the company became insolvent.
Particularly in -- state in New York you have many many insurance companies here so there's an unofficial treaty amongst the companies that they would assume the books of business and generally.
So there there is a lot of protection for the client's overall the industry's a double -- industry you can make a strong case that it's much stronger than the banking industry.
I'll just don't die you'll get a three to 4% -- good to see you -- a good to see you is thank -- world is looking for new ideas and of course you represent.
