We all can agree that planning for the financial well being of our families is certainly a subject we should give some serious thought to. And that’s the purpose of the following information – a serious though not complicated look at “the truth about life insurance” and why it’s important to you.
First of all, let’s get one simple truth out of the way right now … it’s not a pleasant thought, but it is a necessary one: Life insurance is about what a person is going to leave to his or her heirs after he or she dies (and that “what” means m-o-n-e-y). But, life insurance can be much more than that; in fact, life insurance can be a way to build up a personal fund that you may use yourself BEFORE you die.
Buying life insurance can be very confusing because, today, you have so many choices. If you’ve ever thought about “What is the best type of life insurance to own,” the simple and best answer is “The type of life insurance that is in force on the day your heirs need it!” That may sound like some salesperson’s quick retort, but it is really The Truth!
However, most Americans have many, many other questions bouncing around in their minds when they get around to giving serious thought to buying life insurance. Here are a few of those important questions:
Term Life Insurance
It should come as no surprise to you that “term” life insurance involves “time,” that it pays a death benefit to your heirs only if you (the insured) die during a specified period.
Permanent Life Insurance
The two primary differences between Term Life and Permanent Life insurance are: Permanent Life Insurance provides you with coverage throughout your entire lifetime, and it may include a way for you to build “cash value in your policy.

Low Risk, Low Volatility Disclosure: Your investment advisor may recommend third-party money managers who utilize investment strategies designed to minimize portfolio volatility and reduce the risk of declines in account values. Like any other investment strategy, this approach entails risks, including the risk that client accounts can still lose value and the risk that a defensive position may, at any given point in time, prevent client accounts from appreciating in value.
We describe the Horter investment management platform by using the terms "Low Risk" and "Low Volatility" to emphasize the strategies employed by our money managers. However, notwithstanding the risk management strategies employed by these money managers, certain investment portfolios employed by our money managers present a greater degree of investment risk than others depending upon the performance of the underlying securities. We typically refer to these strategies as "Moderate Risk" and "Moderate Volatility". Such performance can be impacted by a number of risk factors, including but not limited to (i) the level of price volatility (equity securities generally have greater price volatility than debt securities, (ii) changes in interest rates, and (iii) the ability of the manager to purchase or sell a security in a timely manner at desired prices.
