Best known as a billionaire tycoon and a hostile corporate takeover entrepreneur, T. Boone Pickens was an amazing person with great financial sense.
But in 2008 one of his ideas crashed. Pickens had helped Oklahoma State University buy life insurance through Premium Financing. After the 2008 crash T. Boone Pickens stepped in personally to bailout OSU and they still lost the life insurance.
Today you’ll see a lot of people encouraging premium financing on the internet or in seminars. Unless you have deep pockets or a rich benefactor like T. Boone Pickens it’s much better to stick with a “comfortable and affordable” strategy for funding your life insurance assets. If Premium Financing was a wildcard for T. Boone Pickens, what makes you think it could be different for you?
