    You’ve just come into a big lump sum of cash, and you’re ready to get started with Infinite Banking.

    What's the Best Policy for Infinite Banking?

    What's the Best Policy for Infinite Banking?

    There’s been a lot of buzz around Universal Life Insurance policies. Mostly because they offer great flexibility in their premiums, and they sound great at first glance.
    So you might be wondering: is this a better way to do infinite banking?
    That’s what I’m talking about today on the podcast. I’ll explain what Universal Life Insurance is, and why there are several types. And I’ll tell you why I still believe whole life insurance is the way to go.
    Plus, if you’ve got term life insurance you’re hoping to convert to whole life in the future: I’ll share something you need to look out for.

(10:00) Nelson Nash’s guiding principle that lets you use IBC even if you never have a bank account or insurance policy. (11:36) Shocking details lurking inside universal life policies.

Never Heard WL This Way

Valerie, thank you, thank you, thank you!

I’ve always been told to Buy Term and Invest the Difference and worked for the same company you did in the past that preached that concept.

I’m glad to be a new member of the team and helping clients to understand this powerful concept!

Thank you!

Josh in IL ,

Great explanations all the way through

Best explanation of this concept I have heard. The idea seemed so foreign and only for rich people. After listening to every episode over a few days I can say I will be a customer. Awesome supplement to Nelson’s book.

VX Alum ,

Great information.

I wish I had learned about this concept 30 years ago. Valerie breaks down the information in manageable, bite sized pieces in each podcast. It really builds on itself if you listen from the beginning. 2 enthusiastic thumbs up! 👍🏻👍🏻
