Variable Universal Life in a Volatile Market

In spite of choppy equity markets, variable life is again the fastest growing life product in terms of year over year growth with new premium sales up 50% in the first quarter according to LIMRA.  In my presentation, I will discuss reasons for this seeming anomaly and specific VUL product features and riders that can be used to reduce risk for policyholders.

Key Takeaways:

  • Why VUL sales are growing in spite of market turbulence
  • How annual premiums serve as dollar cost averaging
  • How VUL products with death benefit guarantees reduce impact of market turbulence
  • How the newest crop of VUL products for accumulation make servicing of these products easier
