LiverpoolVic aims at IHT planning

Liverpool Victoria is offering whole-of-life guaranteed premium life cover.

The policy pays out a lump sum, with premiums guaranteed for the duration of the policy. Minimum premium is 5 a month and level or index-linked options are available.

It features additional inheritance tax-guaranteed insurability options, which cover marriage, divorce, inheritance, and legal adoption of a child.

Liverpool Vic says it launched the policy in response to concerns from intermediaries about the trend towards reviewable rates for IHT planning products. More people are becoming liable for IHT.

Intermediary marketing manager Helen Collins says: “The product’s guaranteed premiums give total piece of mind that the monthly outlay will not change, irrespective of legislative changes, and we bel- ieve that the product will be the perfect solution for many IHT planning needs.”
