International private placement life insurance (PPLI) is a privately negotiated life insurance contract between an international insurance carrier and policy owner. PPLI offers several advantages compared to standard policies. Policy funds are held in segregated accounts that protect the funds against the carrier’s creditors. PPLI enables a wider range of investment opportunities managed by a professional investment adviser selected by the policy owner. Finally, policy costs are transparent, negotiable and typically lower than off-the-shelf insurance products.  An alternative to PPLI is a foreign deferred variable annuity which offers the same benefits of a PPLI but in a form of an annuity.
