What is The Infinite Banking Concept®?
At its core, The Infinite Banking Concept® is about relearning what you think you know about money in order to inspire individuals to take control of their financial lives. The primary method to accomplish this is by reclaiming the banking function from outsiders.
The term Infinite Banking Concept® was created by Nelson Nash in his book “Becoming Your Own Banker®.” It is a financial philosophy that has been in practice by many for over 100 years. IBC will challenge what you thought about banking and insurance.
The philosophy primarily manifests itself through a very powerful strategy called Private Family Banking or Becoming Your Own Banker®.
“A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children’s children: and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just”Proverbs 13:22
“The very first principle that must be understood is that you finance everything you buy–you either pay interest to someone else or you give up the interest you could have earned otherwise.”Nelson Nash
Learn More About The Infinite Banking Concept®
IBC is a paradigm shift for many regarding the practice of banking which may require you to learn, unlearn, and/or relearn what you thought you knew about money and banking. IBC is a 100% legal and legitimate financial strategy that has been used by many for several decades to build wealth and prosperity.
How does Infinite Banking Concept® work?
In a nutshell, individuals can utilize properly designed dividend-paying whole life policies to replace or reduce the reliance on outside commercial banks or other institutional lenders.
Individuals build up large “cash surrender values” in one or more whole life insurance policies. Instead of borrowing money from a commercial bank to finance the purchase of a vehicle, for example, that individual would take out a policy loan from the insurance company using the cash surrender value of the policy as collateral.
Instead of repaying the bank, you repay yourself including most of the interest. Personal banking can be a powerful and incredibly profitable business if done correctly.
