    2. Key Man Insurance

    5. Retirement Compensation Arrangements (RCA)

Estate Planning:

Liquidity is the biggest challenge when dealing with estate assets. Investments such as stocks, bonds, mutual funds, segregated funds, GIC's and term deposits can usually be sold immediately. Other types of investments are not as liquid and cannot be sold when the funds are needed.

The most common assets that can cause illiquidity and in some cases insolvency to an estate are as follows:

    1. Real Estate

    2. Limited Partnerships

    3. Mortgage Pools and Mortgages 

    4. Shares in Privately Controlled Corporations

Life insurance is used in estate planning to supply liquidity to estates with illiquid assets. Cash from insurance policies prevents estate insolvency and estate assets having to be sold at fire sale prices.
