We would like to apologize for not really settling the argument of who’s better in The VUL vs BTID Smackdown.
So here’s our remedy for that.
In the tradition of this classic question: “Why did the chicken cross the road?” We’ve also interviewed some noteworthy personalities and asked why they invested in a VUL or BTID.
I hope this helps you decide where to put your savings in.
Why invest in a VUL insurance?
Plato: For the Greater Good
Aristotle: Man is basically a social animal; it is his nature to dive-in a pool of VUL money
Karl Marx: Because it is a historical inevitability!

Descartes: I invested in VUL because I think I can.
Austin Powers: In owning a VUL policy, I feel sexy. I feel like an animal. A Tiger! Yeah, baby, yeah!
Moses: And God came down from the heaves and He said unto his agents. Go and secure lives and they did and there was much rejoicing.
Fox Moulder: I became a VUL agent. You saw it with your own eyes. How many more insurance do I need to sell before you believe me?
Machiavelli: I invested my money on insurance. Who cares why? The end of investing justifies the means.

Why employ a BTID strategy?

Charles Darwin: Man over a great period of time, have naturally selected and evolved in such a way that they are now genetically endowed with the capability to predict their expiration, thus I go Term.

Ernest Hemingway: To die. In the rain.
Bill Clinton. I do not. I repeat. I do not have sexual diseases. No STDs. No BTIDs.
