ABOUT THIS EPISODE
Tom Rutkowski, President and Founder of Innovative Retirement Strategies, talks with Susan about using life insurance policies to purchase real estate to put your money to work in two places at once and garner far greater returns and tax benefits than purchasing real estate in typical ways. This is a fascinating interview on a subject many deem a boring topic (life insurance) but real estate investors know you’ve got to dig to strike gold—this episode delivers!
ABOUT TOM RUTKOWSKI
Tom Rutkowski, graduated with an MBA in Finance and Investments from the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee in 1995. He started investing at 20 years of age. After riding out many of the ups and downs of the market, he figured out that a simple indexed approach to investing was the best way to outperform the market. His graduate research showed that only 1/3 of mutual funds and professional money managers can beat an un-managed index mutual fund. Much more recently, as the need to protect his principal gets more important, he discovered an even better way to save for retirement: Equity-Indexed Universal Life Insurance.
