My previous post was wrong. I had a brainfade; in trying to make a fair comparison I went overboard. The deposit is $150/mo, period. The internal fees (policy fees & mortality charge) of the IUL are just that -- internal fees of that account and are completely accounted for in the expense/fee field. The life insurance is of no benefit to the account holder -- it's a throwaway -- therefore it is not appropriate to reduce the monthly deposit of the B&H account by that amount.
The monthly deposit is $150, period.

Using various different asset allocations for the S&P500 B&H portfolio.
X% S&P500 / Y% 10-yr T-bill
initial deposit $15,000, monthly addition $150, No tax on dividends.
