Round Table | IBC Users Guide for Lines of Credit

Taking out a loan on your life insurance policy can give you quick access to cash, but only if you have the right type of policy.

It is said to be a system that offers complete flexibility, control, and protection of your investments. Unlike any other retirement account, you have the freedom to choose your investments with an eQRP. That sounds like a fantastic way to build wealth and achieve financial freedom. WRONG!
