Investopedia explains 'Equity-Indexed Universal Life Insurance'


Indexed universal life insurance differs from variable universal life insurance in that indexed policies follow a stock market index, while variable policies can allow policyholders to allocate funds to a variety of investment vehicles, such as stocks, bonds and equity funds. Indexed policies tend to be less expensive than variable policies, and offer greater security against stock market declines.
