There are two types of people in the world: those who have heard a sales pitch about permanent life insurance, and those who will hear a sales pitch about permanent life insurance. And the way these policies are sold ― on the premise of guaranteed returns and tax-free withdrawals ― often give investors a false sense of security. In this episode of Dentist Money™, Reese & Ryan walk through the stages of grieving that usually follow the purchase of permanent life. They also talk about the rare exceptions for justifying insurance as an investment, and how to unwind a bad policy if you already have one.
Do you know the difference between a stock and a bond? Maybe you do. But even if you grasp the concept of fixed income versus equity, you may not realize how complex the bond market is. In this episode of Dentist Money™, Reese & Ryan describe the different types of bonds you can own, the risk levels associated with each, and how bonds can be used to lower your taxes. (And they make it through the entire show without telling a single James Bond joke).
