Job Title:



 In 1991, I entered the life insurance business full-time, and soon formed my own national brokerage. Throughout my career, I have been dedicated to mastering the craft of selling life insurance, and am an expert in helping people get a policy who represent a “higher risk” due to health, lifestyle, or other personal issues. Along the way, I have developed a huge network of industry contacts that enables me to serve as a primary resource for all the insurance needs of my individual and corporate clients.

I now help brokers, advisers, and financial firms across the country utilize my organization and become a primary resource for the insurance needs of their own clients. They form strategic partnerships with my providers so they can stay within their own area of specialization, yet help their clients purchase the other products they need from professionals in those marketplaces. It's a winning formula for all concerned.

My firm runs a Global Insurance Portal through which consumers, brokers, consulting firms, and agencies can gain access to the insurance resources they need, on a global basis.

On the personal side, I am a religious Jew and avid practitioner of kung fu. I have studied spiritual disciplines and personal development all my adult life. I am a conservative in my political and economic views, and a liberal when it comes to keeping an open mind and a willingness to work with people of all persuasions.

Should we keep paying the premiums for a whole life insurance policy and let the cash value grow until year 10, or do we get out now and invest the difference and hope to recoup the losses?

What you have is probably the best product in the marketplace to grow cash on a guaranteed basis. Can you honestly find another vehicle that will give you the same guaranteed interest rate? Has anybody shown you a schedule of values over the next 10, 20 or 30 years that grows as much cash on a guaranteed basis, as this product? Plus, you have nonguaranteed values in the form of dividends. Have you come across conservative investments that historically match the dividend paying history of this carrier?

And, you have the death benefit on both a guaranteed and on a scheduled basis.

As far as I'm concerned, this is the primary value of whole life insurance. Give some hard thought as to whether you want to incorporate these financial benefits in your portfolio. If so, then stay put. If not – if you find that you really don't want these benefits – then you should cut your losses now.
