Insurance Products For Affluent Foreign Nationals
SilverRock Partners and Foreign National Insurance
Perhaps one of the most pressing concerns for residents of other countries transacting in the U.S. is that of excessive estate tax burdens. For example, when a foreign national attempts to transfer assets upon their death they will likely encounter major tax efficiency issues. Silver Rock Partners understands these challenges and is dedicated to working closely with affluent individuals from foreign countries who are wishing to establish and maintain better control of estate tax issues. The first determining factor when addressing foreign national insurance is that of tax reciprocity. In short, while some countries do have tax reciprocity agreements in place with the US, most do not. This is where Silver Rock Partners can help.
Underwriting Foreign Nationals and Reciprocity Agreements
When breaking this concept down in terms of actual numbers the distinction can be quite surprising. For example, in light of the fact that a typical married couple in the US will enjoy a combined $22.8 million in total estate tax exemption when transferring assets to heirs upon death, a foreign national will only realize a lackluster $60 thousand for the same asset transfer event. Simply stated, in the absence of a reciprocity agreement, those from other countries suffer substantial estate asset losses unless they take a proactive approach to the situation. Silver Rock Partners has years of experience in assisting and underwriting foreign nationals in gaining a more decisive control over their estate and legacy assets.
Policies Designed for High Net Worth Individuals
Foreign nationals who are contemplating the buying or selling of assets in the United States may be well advised to consider this situation and plan accordingly. Those from other countries with a high net worth who are in search of experienced and focused estate planning and legacy planning routinely turn to Silver Rock Partners. The firm has a proven track record and a reputation that speaks for itself. This respected multi-generational insurance firm clearly understands that a reputation is earned and never given.

Favorable Transfer of Wealth to Beneficiaries
Protecting a legacy from overwhelming estate tax liability has an excellent remedy in simply establishing the right type of life insurance policy. Simply put, a life insurance policy is not considered under U.S. tax code to be part of a foreign national’s U.S. Gross estate holdings. As such, death benefits are not subject to estate taxes in the United States. The end result is a favorable transfer of wealth and assets to beneficiaries or heirs that is perfectly intact. When those from other countries establish a life insurance policy that is inline with estimated U.S. estate tax liability, foreign national beneficiaries and heirs are then able to retain control of financial assets that will be necessary to pay any estate taxes in the United States.
