This product is one of the most complex products in the insurance industry. Its fees, costs and performance varies widely from company to company. Given the fact that you can simply borrow your permanent (whole life) insurance cash values and invest them yourself (without the sales loads) why pay twice? Overall a good read, especially for those who are not informed as to how to utilize their life insurance as a financial tool.
