What are the most important factors to consider when choosing a life insurance company?

Carrier financial strength, diversity of products and quality of service.

How can insurance cover inheritance tax for children?

Most of the wealthy families we engage with in Arkansas and elsewhere have accumulated their wealth by building large and successful family-run companies. Often their desire is for these businesses to be passed down to future generations, but they are often subject to significant estate taxes at death. Owning life insurance is often the most efficient way to plan for this inevitable liability and allow the family to continue to keep their capital in their most productive asset: their company.
