active-1853657_640If you’re a reader of this blog, you’ve probably got an investment strategy well in hand, which will make sure you are happy and secure during your retirement. Maybe you’re using investment simply to increase your wealth, with or without a specific financial goal in mind. In any case, everyone who invests does so for future security and greater options in life. Some people do it for purely selfless motives, hoping to have a large sum of money to give to someone else, a dependent or independent loved one.

A common trait of solid investors is independence and intelligence. These are people who investigate the composition and trajectory of their portfolio with a fine toothed comb. Even so, many adult investors don’t have life insurance, which seems to me to be a major oversight in financial planning. Here’s why.

  • Life Insurance Helps Loved One As Soon as They Need it. Think about the complexity of your investment strategy. Is there anyone else in your life but you who understands all of your investment allocations, what you have stashed where? What would happen if you suddenly passed away? Even if you had more than enough money for your loved ones and dependents to live on, how quickly could they access it? It’s important for people who create wealth for themselves to also prepare for its disbursement, should they not be around to do it themselves. This means to prepare a will and to get no exam life insurance. It could help your loved ones through the most challenging financial time in their lives.
  • Life Insurance is an Efficient Use of Money. One of the main reasons investors might avoid buying life insurance is the cost. Investors understand how any money invested today can turn into a lot of money down the road. This causes investors to pass on spending money, even when it is for a sensible purpose like cash value life insurance. It is important to understand that if you were to pass on, the payout of life insurance would be quite valuable. And even if you never use your life insurance, the peace of mind that comes with knowing you and your family are covered is usually enough to make it a worthwhile investment.
  • Buying Life Insurance Triggers Other Sensible Behaviors. Buying life insurance requires an individual to be realistic and practical about their health and their future. No longer do you imagine you’ll live forever. Instead, you take control of the body and circumstances you have. People who buy life insurance might also start exercising and eating right, because all three behaviors prepare for the future in the same way. People who won’t buy life insurance are also likely to avoid other healthy behaviors that could benefit themselves and their families in the future.

There are many reasons for an investor to buy life insurance, but perhaps it is easier to understand why an investor would not do so. There are many reasons to take the plunge, and the benefits are more than worth. It.
