1 The international Insurance Policy Kenforth Life Insurance Limited trusted to deliver...

2 Introduction Sophisticated clients have for many years sought to legally protect their wealth for their families and others. In particular, Trusts have been used in common law jurisdictions. Life assurance is also universally effective. One major difference is that whereas Trusts are essentially equitable arrangements between a settlor, trustee and beneficiary, life assurance is a contractual arrangement, between a Policyholder (owner) and the Life Insurance Company. Usually the Life Insurance Company will invest in assets to meet its contractual liabilities (determined by the value of the assets) at some future point in time, to the Policyholder. A life assurance policy will provide certainty to the investor as the Life Insurance Company is usually well regulated and protected by strict rules relating to solvency and as to who manages the company. Furthermore, the Life Insurance Company is the legal, equitable and beneficial owner of the assets of the policy and the Policyholder has no interest in those assets, nor do they have the power to enjoy those assets or control them indirectly or directly. This makes a life contract a very potent investment structure for the purposes of legal tax deferral, continuity and succession planning. In certain instances, a life assurance policy may be owned by a Trust and in this situation the Trustees would be the Policyholder of the contract.

3 The International Insurance Policy The International Insurance Policy (IIP) from Kenforth has been designed as a single premium whole of life policy meeting the requirements of the laws of the Commonwealth of the Bahamas. The parties to the Policy (contract) are: the Policyholder (any natural or legal person or trustee); the Life Insurance Company - Kenforth Life Insurance Limited; the Lives Assured (multiple) written on a last life basis; and in certain circumstances the Policyholder may appoint a Beneficiary to the policy other than himself. Each policy has a segregated and protected investment account or portfolio, which may be invested in many ways. The IIP will only crystallize or mature in the event of the death of the last life assured and you may appoint a life assured at any time. The death benefit is the value of the underlying assets plus $100, less any outstanding charges which are outlined in this brochure. The death benefit will normally be paid to either the Policyholder or, where appointed, the Beneficiary. A Beneficiary can be changed or revoked at any time by the Policyholder. The IIP can be surrendered either partially or in full, at any time.

4 Investment Options The Policy is designed to be flexible in terms of what investments it may hold and may invest in: investment funds; structured investments; direct investments; fiduciary deposits; and private company shares. All will be subject to the approval (and made under the control) of Kenforth however it is possible for you to: manage your portfolio with assistance from your financial adviser; or appoint a discretionary asset manager to select the investment options according to a pre-determined risk profile. Furthermore, subject to Kenforth s approval a choice of Custodian Banks is also available. There is virtually no limit to the differing options available - please contact your financial adviser or Kenforth for further information.

5 How to apply Complete a simple application form which is available on request through our secure portal; a minimum investment or asset value equivalent of EUR 250,000 or currency equivalent will form the insurance premium or consideration to establish the IIP contract; the application will be subject to Kenforth s KYC and AML requirements which reflect international standards; once accepted by Kenforth a policy document will be issued and a segregated policy account will be opened with the agreed Custodian Bank or investment manager; and an opening statement will be issued to the Policyholder or nominated financial adviser and valuation and communication protocols defined.

6 The Benefits Kenforth is based in the Commonwealth of the Bahamas, a British territory which is highly stable and provides a protective environment in which to operate. It is highly respectful of the confidentiality of legal persons and their fundamental ability to trade and invest in a manner that is legal and that may result in their ability to legally defer or mitigate taxation charges. Kenforth is not required to deduct any tax at source and thus (other than withholding taxes on income from investments levied by other countries) its investments are able to roll up free of any taxes in the Bahamas. A Policyholder s liability to taxation will depend on their own personal circumstances, residency and domicile and the laws of their home country or countries. We strongly recommend that policyholders seek detailed taxation advice. A Kenforth IIP policy: is outside the scope of the EU savings directive; offers mitigation of Swiss stamp duty on securities transactions; offers possible mitigation and or deferral of income, capital taxes, gift, estate and inheritance taxes; provides confidentiality and respect for privacy; removes the requirement to obtain probate on a group of assets; gives the opportunity to structure assets in a compliant form, for example Sharia compliant; provides the possibility to avoid and structure assets outside of forced heirship provisions; allows Policyholders to take withdrawals either partial or full at any time (subject to certain criteria); provides ease and security of administration; allows access to investment strategies that are highly bespoke to the Policyholder s wishes; may appoint a Beneficiary; may be used as a savings or pension top up; and may be pledged in a back to back transaction up to an agreed amount of the policy value.
