It provides diverse investment prospects and adaptability while being internationally acknowledged as an intergenerational legal framework.

For numerous years, the Setty Flow PPLI team has been aiding high-net-worth (HNW) families in financial structure planning. We can steer you through the process and assist you in making optimal decisions for your inheritance and multigenerational planning requirements.

The Basic Concept Of PPLI

Private Placement Life Insurance (PPLI) is a framework that enables affluent individuals and families to invest their premiums in cash or assets. These funds are then directed through an insurance company into a chosen asset or fund according to the family's investment criteria.

Private Placement Life Insurance (PPLI) is designed for various groups:

1. Family Offices: These entities often have intricate needs in wealth management and estate planning. PPLI can provide the flexibility, customization, potential tax benefits, and privacy they require.

2. Corporations and Large Shareholders: PPLI can be used as a tool to manage and transfer corporate assets or to provide executive compensation packages. Clients in this category may benefit from potential tax advantages and asset protection.

3. Individuals or Families with Assets in Multiple Countries: Managing assets across multiple jurisdictions can be complex and costly. PPLI offers a way to consolidate and simplify the management of these assets in a tax-efficient manner.

4. Families Interested in Intergenerational Wealth Planning: Families looking to preserve and grow their wealth over multiple generations may find PPLI suitable. It helps maintain investing capabilities across generations by avoiding the reduction of assets due to divisions.

5. Families Seeking Consolidation and an Alternative to Trusts: For those who prefer not to use trusts, PPLI can be an appealing alternative. It provides many benefits to trusts, such as asset protection and tax efficiency, while avoiding some drawbacks like loss of control and increased complexity.

PPLI offers numerous advantages for high-net-worth (HNW) individuals:

Wealth Distribution:

- Succession Planning: PPLI facilitates passing on assets to beneficiaries through confidential nominations or trusts, avoiding family disputes and heirship rules in certain countries.

- Probate Avoidance: By using beneficiary nominations or placing the policy in trust, PPLI benefits can be swiftly passed to beneficiaries, bypassing the probate process.

Wealth Accumulation:

- Diversification: PPLI provides access to diverse assets, catering to various needs, investment objectives, and risk profiles.

- Simplicity: It allows transferring existing assets into the policy, consolidating them and simplifying management.

- Liquidity: Families can access funds through partial withdrawals or loans if required.

Wealth Protection:

- Tax Efficiency: PPLI enables tax-efficient ownership and title changes of assets, reducing tax obligations on asset growth and income.

- Asset Protection: Utilizing the Setty Flow structure, PPLI can shield assets from fraudulent takeovers, providing additional protection.

Setty Flow PPLI offers several key benefits:

Confidentiality: PPLI policies are not publicly traded, providing an additional layer of confidentiality for policyholders. This can be important for families concerned about maintaining privacy in their estate planning.

 Professional Management: PPLI policies may provide opportunities for professional asset management. This can be valuable for families who prefer to have their assets managed by experts, especially if they lack the time or expertise to manage investments themselves.

 Inheritance Planning: PPLI can be used as a tool for passing on wealth to future generations and for succession planning. Policyholders can specify beneficiaries to receive policy proceeds in a tax-efficient manner, helping to reduce potential tax liabilities for future generations.

Setty Flow PPLI involves several key roles:

1. Policy Holder: The owner(s) of the contract who control the policy. They have the right to select the investment strategy, appoint beneficiaries, surrender the policy, and make changes. The policyholder can be an individual(s), a company, or a legal structure like a trust or foundation.

2. Insured Person: The life of this person is linked to the policy. When the insured person dies, the contract typically ends. The insured person must be a private individual, and there can be multiple insured persons in a joint-insured contract.

3. Beneficiary/ies: Receives the payout upon the death of the insured person(s). Beneficiaries can be private individuals, companies, or legal structures like trusts or foundations.

4. Arbiter: A third party, either an individual or a company, given specific rights in the policy. This can be an attorney, trustee, or advisor who acts as an arbiter in the policy.

Private Placement Life Insurance (PPLI) enables high-net-worth families to transfer a range of assets into a life insurance policy, facilitating wealth growth and preservation in a tax-efficient manner. Assets that can be transferred into a PPLI policy include:

1. Open-ended investment companies: Investment funds that can be bought or sold daily without a fixed maturity date.

2. Private shares: Shares of a company not listed on a public stock exchange, usually available to a select group of investors. Assets held under this company are automatically accepted as assets in the PPLI.

3.  Unit trusts: Investment trusts that pool money from multiple investors to buy a diversified portfolio of assets like stocks, bonds, and property.

4. Exchange-traded funds (ETFs): Funds that track the performance of an index, sector, or asset class, traded on stock exchanges.

5. Fixed interest securities/bonds: Debt instruments that pay a fixed interest rate with a fixed maturity date.

6. Stocks/shares: Ownership stakes in a company, entitling holders to a share of profits and voting rights.

1. Tax and Legal Advice: Investors should direct tax and legal questions to their own tax or legal advisors, as this material does not provide such advice.

3. Liquidity and Transfer Restrictions: Investing in some funds within a PPLI may be illiquid and subject to significant transfer restrictions.

These considerations emphasize the need for investors to seek professional advice and carefully evaluate the suitability and limitations of PPLI investments based on their circumstances and investment objectives.
