Dallas, TX (Vocus) May 20, 2010
Clark Consulting, LLC, a leader in nonqualified benefit plan design, administrative services and employer-owned life insurance, announced today the release of a new thought leadership piece examining the strategic use of insurance company-owned life insurance (ICOLI). Written by Tom Chisholm, David Fisher and Todd Andritsch, independent consultants of Clark Consulting, the article discusses the rewards and risks of ICOLI programs and why they are gaining popularity with insurance executives who seek cost-effective financing strategies to offset rising executive and employee benefit costs.
According to the article, the benefits of an ICOLI program are numerous, including immediate accretion to earnings, portfolio diversification and capital preservation. In addition, life insurance policies typically receive favorable tax and accounting treatment, as well as favorable risk-based capital treatment, making them a viable investment alternative for portfolio diversification.
Entitled ''Innovations in Insurance Company Financial Management: The Strategic Use of Life Insurance as an Asset on the Insurance Company’s Balance Sheet,'' the paper is available at http://www.clarkconsulting.com/resource/articles/coli/index.shtml and through Clark Consulting independent consultants.
