3 Reasons to Implement an Insurance Offering During Times of Volatility

We are living in unprecedented times. Markets have been in free fall, the future of the world economy, global supply chains, and the service industry, as we know it is in a state of flux. There has never been a better time to talk about planning. Take a step back from markets & investment selection, revisit client goals, and delve into their vision of legacy. Having the conversation is not enough; advisors must have actionable strategies to partner with planning attorneys, CPA’s and other experts.  

Insurance-based wealth management solutions are necessary regardless of the market sentiment and current or future wealth-transfer taxes, giving the advisor the ammunition to help clients reach their goals, particularly in the current environment of uncertainty. There is a strong sense of urgency to act now.


1. Bring a Calming Effect to Clients

Investors are rightly stressed and emotional right now. Linking insurance outcomes with long-term legacy goals, intergenerational wealth transfer and shielding inheritance from taxes brings a sense of control back to the investment process. These are concrete actions a client can take today to positively impact their family legacy tomorrow.


2. Take Back Control of the Portfolio

Don’t just sit looking at losses. Take control, bank the loss. Have strategies to move assets at a low basis out of the estate now. Insurance is a key strategy an advisor has to make tax-effective investments for the client. Don’t simply sit and wait, use this opportunity to make a negative a positive.


3. Liquidity, Diversification, and Non-correlated Returns

Inject a new asset class into the portfolio. Clients are justifiably hesitant to invest in the current environment. Insurance products provide a large variety of non-correlated return profiles to help hedge illiquid client balance sheets, hedge certain interest rate risk through guaranteed return profiles, complement equity exposure with cap and floor participation and even assist with business succession and buy/sell planning. 


Right now, robust long-term planning and goal alignment have a calming effect. When markets come back, your clients will thank you. In the meantime, your business will thank you too with a diversified, non-correlated income stream and stickier client accounts, bound by the fact you care beyond giving trading advice. If you have an insurance partnership already, prioritize it. If you don’t, find one.
