Hi Spinning,How does an IUL compare to other low-risk strategies, such as a ladder of FDIC insured CDs, or bonds? I would expect insured CDs and unhedged bonds to underperform the hedged structure used inside an IUL... but if you can find historical data, maybe Ray can add a column (or ful worksheet) to consider the question.==============Hi Synchro,I get that you are discussing structuring a contract with as "thin" a death benefit as possible, but you still have increasing mortality expenses per $1,000 of death benefit as the individual ages and (as discussed at length on this thread) variability in the crediting rate on the cash value.I know the thread is long & scrolly... but the solution to your dilema is there;As the mortality charges increase per dollar of death benefit, the required amount of death benefit decreases faster.I'd be leery of making a blanket statement that the mortality costs are always going to be decreasing, but that may be due to overexposure to a compliance department. :-)Not sure what you mean here.Dave DonhoffLeverage Planner
