CheckMate® Selling Logic – Let the Math Do the Talking

Now that Democrats control the White House, the House and the Senate, substantial income tax increases are a near certainty later this year.  So, the power of InsMark's comparison logic has never been more useful to you and your clients.  Specifically, the higher the income tax, the better the cash value life insurance performs compared to alternatives. During this session, we will show you the best and most current CheckMate® comparisons of cash value life insurance to alternative investments based on what is likely to happen with tax rates in the near future.

8:45a – 9:30a

DAY 2

The Magic of Grantor Trusts

This session highlights a Grantor Trust as the linchpin to a client’s estate plan featuring Wealthy and Wise® (Advanced). There is no other wealth planning strategy that comes close to the function of a Grantor Trust:  

  1.   Massive increase in wealth to heirs
  2.   Net Worth vs. Family Net Worth
  3.   Access to trust values by the Grantor and/or Spouse
  4.   Zero estate taxes
  5.   Loan-Based Private Split-dollar owned by a Grantor Trust
8:30a – 9:00a

Split-Dollar for Tax-Exempt Organizations

Once in a while, tax law and split-dollar create a unique, new executive benefit. This result applies to large tax-exempt organizations caught in the trap of Section 4960 of the Internal Revenue Code, where compensation of more than $1,000,000 a year is subject to a 21% excise tax. Fortunately, a split-dollar loan is not considered compensation.  

Many of you have heard of “Jim Harbaugh” split-dollar where Michigan State provides its football coach with a massive split-dollar arrangement. His plan is not limited to sports figures; any non-profit organization can use it. In this session, I will introduce you to a large non-profit company that uses the concept to recruit a new chief executive officer with a benefit that provides $1,000,000 a year of tax-free retirement cash flow. That cash flow is not subject to the 21% excise tax.

9:00a – 10:00a

The Pothole in Wealth Planning (Good Logic vs. Bad Logic®)

Real wealth involves sustainable cash flow coupled with maximum net worth invested at comfortable yields. Note the use of the phrase “cash flow,” not “income.” This distinction often means accessing principal from weaker assets while allowing more robust assets to accrue.  Everyone contemplating retirement must determine the sustainable level that a given amount of liquid assets will provide.  If you logically address “let’s be sure you won’t run out of money,” you will have vitally interested listeners.

Wealthy and Wise® has a unique algorithm that calculates the precise order to access separate assets to maximize cash flow, net worth, and wealth to heirs. This process is the genesis of Good Logic vs. Bad Logic®, and you will see it in action.

2:30p – 3:00p
Grandparents Love Their Grandchildren
