Gift of Life Insurance
Many consumers who have gathered a significant amount of wealth through a variety of financial products and accumulation vehicles may be concerned about asset transfer.

First by donating an existing policy to charity. Second, a consumer can name a charity as a beneficiary of a death benefit. And lastly, a consumer can structure a charity-owned life insurance policy on their life, gifting the equivalent of premium amounts to the designated charity.
