What is a boli?
A “BOLI” known as bank-owned life insurance, is a form of life insurance purchased by banks where the bank is actually the beneficiary, and/or owner. This form of insurance serves as a tax shelter for the administering bank, as it is a tax-free funding scheme for employee benefits. In other words, it is a tax efficient method that offsets employee benefit costs whereas cash surrender values grow tax-deferred, providing the bank with monthly bookable income.
What is coli and Boli?
In contrast to BOLI, which is bank-owned life insurance and more specifically a tax-free funding scheme for employee benefits, COLI is corporate owned life insurance which is an investment alternative to Mutual Fund scenarios, allowing a corporation to accumulate a tax-deferred asset. The company purchases and owns a life insurance policy on a key employee and is the primary beneficiary, also receiving tax-free benefits. The corporation pays non-deductible premiums and receives tax-deferred cash values.
