    Is there such a thing as the “perfect” asset?

    Ian Whiting

    If you found an asset that met all 13 of these criteria – would you purchase it? What about if the asset made 12 out of 13? What about 6 out of 13? Or 3 out of 13?

    ◊ Safe harbour against the vagaries of market turmoil
    ◊ Welcomed by lending institutions as “Grade A” collateral – welcomed everywhere
    ◊ Excellent liquidity
    ◊ Can’t lose money through market movement once it has accumulated the values
    ◊ Tax-deferred or tax-preferred growth
    ◊ Competitive return on investment after set-up
    ◊ Guaranteed internal loan options without recourse
    ◊ Deductible contributions or deposits
    ◊ Creditor-proof to the greatest possible extent
    ◊ Unstructured and optional loan repayment plans
    ◊ High contribution limits
    ◊ Tax-free distribution to named heirs
    ◊ Survivor benefits many time greater than accumulated internal values

    Chances are if you could purchase such a product, you would do everything in your power to acquire as much as you could!

    I haven’t found one single product that matches all 13 – can you? I have one that meets 12 of the criteria. Can you guess? Stay tuned to a future blog – or you can email me at finplan@telus.net for the answer if you are impatient!
