American Institute of CPAs - Personal Financial Planning (PFP)

Dec 17, 2021

Life insurance can be much more than a death benefit. If properly designed, funded, and managed, it can provide an incredible opportunity to grow and distribute assets tax free. In this episode of the PFP Section podcast, Susan Bruno, CPA/PFS, and Michael Fontanini, with Lion Street, share:

  • Who the ideal clients are for this strategy
  • Why this is an excellent way to supplement retirement income
  • Using this approach as an asset location tool
  • How to know if this technique beats investing money directly into the market
