BOLI has consistently provided comparatively high tax equivalent returns compared to alternative investments.
Owners of BOLI typically provide excellent feedback and acknowledge that the asset is one of the top performing assets on the bank’s balance sheet.
BOLI can be purchased to fund a specific employee benefit, or more frequently, can be used as a cost offset to broad-based employee benefit expenses, such as health care, 401(k) match, profit sharing, etc.
