Latest Fact Sheet

Schedule a meeting with a Premium Finance specialist

Premium Financing is a tailor-made solution suitable for high-net-worth individuals. Financing life insurance premiums has certain inherent risks, such as interest rate risk, market (financial market performance) risk, liquidity (credit availability/lending capacity) risk, lender’s financial strength risk, insurance company ratings and stability that could lead to collateral shortfall, among others, all of which may, together and/or separately, result in bank (or “lender”) exiting and/or policy surrender. The loan terms are dependent on the lender and are not guaranteed for the full term of a plan. The lender has the right to discontinue funding new premiums, exit the market or demand loan repayment based on the agreed terms and conditions.
