A financially stable retirement is a key priority for us all as it reflects the financial independence after our productive working life. Therefore, work can become an option not a necessity for retaining the aspired lifestyle. Nevertheless, many choose to neglect the negative impact of insufficient pension provision can create. Fortunaire regards such provision as a fundamental component of financial planning. By taking the current state of all existing assets for pension into account, our advisors would carefully evaluate whether your future living standard is in jeopardy or not. Any shortfalls will have to be covered by additional savings. To ensure your pension constantly on or above target, Fortunaire is responsible for introducing investment opportunities managed by top performing fund managers and available options such as fund switches and flexible contributions that can benefit you for specific situations at different times.
Whilst insurance policies provide death protection it can provide much more. By “wrapping” assets within a life insurance structure an investor can often achieve much higher protection for those assets that can be achieved if the investments are held in personal names.
A portfolio held in personal names will be blocked on death of the owner, and probate and other legal formalities can delay distribution to heirs for many years. Beneficiaries of a life insurance policy simply need to provide valid proof of death of the life assured and proceeds of the policy will usually be released without delay. And in total confidence.
Beneficiaries can be changed at any time, and, unlike with other structures, beneficiaries have no right to information and no access to details of the arrangement during the life of the policyholder.
In certain civil law jurisdictions life insurance is not considered part of the estate of the deceased. Proceeds can therefore be distributed to heirs of choice, outside the system of forced heirship.
In some jurisdictions life insurance enjoys preferential treatment, and will be protected against claims of creditors in event of bankruptcy, or in event of divorce.
A high degree of confidentiality is achieved as the life insurance company is the beneficial owner of the underlying investment portfolio.
Income and capital gains generated by the portfolio is income of the life insurance company and not income of the investor. Tax savings can be substantial. And reporting can often be avoided.
Life insurance often receives preferential tax treatment. Proceeds of life insurance are often tax free, a considerable benefit for heirs in high tax countries.
