Investopedia explains 'Trust-Owned Life Insurance - TOLI'


Life insurance is viewed as a long-term asset that will not be used for its true purpose, ideally, for decades. Consequently it is often overlooked when monitoring and managing the overall trust. However, it is important that the trust-owned insurance policies be reviewed regularly. The existing policy might not meet the current needs of the trust, and newer insurance products might be more cost efficient and offer better options and features.
