The World’s Biggest Life Insurance Policy


wealthymatters

Guinness World Records has announced the World’s Biggest Life Insurance Policy ever issued.

However,neither the record keeper nor the issuer would say who is covered by the massive policy.Dovi Frances, the adviser who arranged the policy, would only say it went to a well-known technology billionaire from California.

The wealthiest of the wealthy often buy life insurance for several reasons.Primary among them are tax purposes.In many countries,a wealthy estate is often hit with a hefty tax bill, and there may not be enough cash to cover it, since many millionaires and billionaires hold their wealth in investments.

This $201 million policy overtakes the previous record of $100 million.It is more complicated than most. It’s underwritten by 19 different insurance companies, each with a slice of less than $20 million. If a single company took the risk of the whole policy they would go into bankruptcy if a claim were to be made.

The yearly premium is in the low single-digit millions.
