Mr. Thomas F. Wiese, President of Institutional Solutions, Crown Global Insurance Group LLC
Many Non-U.S. Investors are reluctant to invest in the U.S. due to the high tax rates. Conventional tax blockers such as Leveraged Blockers and BDCs can be complicated, expensive to implement and still allow significant tax leakage. Proven insurance-based tax blockers are easier and less expensive to implement, while at the same time they can effectively eliminate any tax leakage. These more efficient insurance-based tax blockers can increase a Non-U.S. Investors’ IRR on U.S. assets by over 60% and result in an additional return of 500 basis points as compared to a conventional blocker.
