Modified Endowment contracts can be an annuity alternative. Fully liquid, linked to an index and grows tax deferred with a tax-free death benefit.

Modified Endowment contracts are an over looked annuity alternative advisers should consider.”

— Stuart Chamberlin

BOCA RATON, FL, US, June 22, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — There are many benefits of owning an annuity-like tax differed growth and income for life. But eventually the taxes will be due at an ordinary income rate and for non-spousal beneficiaries, the death benefit will also be taxed.

There is an overlooked annuity alternative that has been around since 1988 that has a tax-free death benefit and at the same time grows tax-deferred. Modified Endowment Contracts (MEC) are in fact life insurance contracts that grow tax-deferred and have a tax-free death benefit.

Unlike annuities, though MEC’s can be used to bypass taxes not just defer them. Many advisors aren’t taking advantage of using this strategy to help their clients by properly designing a MEC to fit their client’s needs.

A MEC is a tax qualification of a life insurance policy where the policy has been funded with more money than allowed under federal laws. If the cumulative premium payments exceed certain amounts specified under the IRS code, the life insurance policy becomes a modified endowment contract.

To illustrate the benefits let's suppose you needed access to your money during the surrender period of your annuity contract and you’re over 59 ½. Most insurance companies allow you access of up 10% a year of your contract value or in many cases just your original investment while most MEC’s allow you access up to 90% -100% of your cash value.

If you create a MEC using an indexed universal life (IUL) policy then the cash value is linked to an index just like a fixed indexed annuity (FIA) without the risk. All the gains on the cash value are locked in annually and in a typical IUL you can take tax-free loans against the cash value. In a MEC though since you over funded the policy any loans or cash withdraws against the cash value are taxed as ordinary income on a Last- in- First- Out (LIFO) basis. The death benefit though is tax-free and the cash value is fully liquid.

So you can overfund a cash value policy, link it to an index growing the cash value tax deferred and in some cases have up to a 135% participation rate in the index increasing the size of your estate to pass to your beneficiaries tax-free.

Many insurance companies are also allowing policy owners access to their death benefit while they’re alive just in case they need long-term care. There is always some cost involved though for these benefits ranging from 1-2 percent depending on one’s age. However many prefer paying for a long-term care benefit that is combined with the death benefit since you may not need the long-term benefit but you will eventually use the death benefit.

Nexus Gold to Drill 4000 Meters at Three West African Gold Projects

Location of gold zones

Location of Nexus Gold Projects

Gold in quartz from Niangouela

Work to expand on known mineralized zones

Nexus Gold Corp (TSX:NXS)

VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA, June 22, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Vancouver, Canada – June 21, 2018 – Nexus Gold Corp. (“Nexus” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: NXS, OTC: NXXGF, FSE: N6E) is pleased to announce it is commencing a 4000-meter RC drill program at it’s three Burkina Faso projects. The summer drill program will begin immediately and will consist of approximately 2000 meters of reverse circulation drilling on the Rakounga exploration permit and 1000 meters each on the Bouboulou and Niangouela exploration permits.


At the 250-sq km Rakounga concession the drill program is designed to test the strike extension of the Koaltenga zone, which to date has returned intercepts of 32 meters averaging 1.01 grams per tonne (“g/t”) gold (”Au”) (including 6m of 2.81 g/t Au and 2m of 5.65 g/t Au) from hole RKG-17-RC-002; 34 meters of 1.00 g/t Au (including 4m of 5.57 g/t Au) from hole RKG-17-RC-008; and 26 meters of 0.82 g/t Au (including 2m of 4.11 g/t Au and 4m of 2.60 g/t Au) from hole RKG-17-RC-001 (see Company news release December 13, 2017).

In addition, the company will be testing two newly identified orpaillages, or zones of artisanal mining activity. The first is termed the Porph 2 orpaillage and is located approximately 400 meters south-west of the previously tested Porphyry zone which returned anomalous gold intercepts in drill holes RKG-17-RC-014 (40m of 0.19 g/t Au) and hole RKG-17-RC-015 (42m of 0.26 g/t Au) (see Company news release December 13, 2017).

The second newly found orpaillage, termed BBL-South, is centrally located in the Rakounga permit. The two workings at BBL-South are believed to be the strike extension of the B2 trend previously identified on the adjacent Bouboulou property. The BBL-South area is located some 7800 metres south west of the Bouboulou 1 zone.

“We’re looking to build on the successes we’ve already had at Koaltenga by drill testing the newly discovered areas,” said Vice President, Exploration, Warren Robb. “We are pleased about the BBL-South find as this helps to define the B2 trend over what could be a significant distance,” continued Mr. Robb.


At the 38-sq km Bouboulou concession the company will drill areas proximal to the previously identified Koala and Pelatanga zones. Drilling in 2017 at Koala returned intercepts of 3m of 5.21 g/t Au (including 1m of 15.50 g/t Au), from drill hole BBL-17-DD-007, and 8.15m of 4.41 g/t Au (including 1m of 23 g/t Au) from drill hole BBL-17-DD-008 (see Company news release dated October 5, 2017). Targeting will test the newly found Rawema South zone which has returned rock samples of 2.40 g/t Au and 5.56 g/t Au (see Company news release February 28, 2018).


At the 176-sq km Niangouela concession the Company will be testing a newly found orpaillage occurring three kilometers to the north east of the primary quartz vein system drilled in January of 2017. The initial drill program at Niangouela produced several mineralized intercepts of note, including 6.20m of 4.00 g/t Au (including 1m of 20.50 g/t Au) from drill hole NGL-17-DD-006, and 4.85m of 26.69 g/t Au (including 1.03m of 132 g/t Au) (see Company news releases dated March 7, 2017 and April 5, 2017).

“This summer drill program, in addition to our current soil grid program, represent significant steps in the development of our Burkina assets,” said president & CEO, Alex Klenman. “One of the primary goals of these programs at the combined Bouboulou-Rakounga concessions is to increase the size of the overall mineralized footprint while generating data to help establish the nature of the proximal relationship of the known gold zones. Niangouela is an earlier stage project, but the high-grade discovery we made there last year makes this a compelling project to pursue. We’re looking forward getting back up there and exploring the new zone,” continued Mr. Klenman.

About the Company

Nexus Gold is a Vancouver-based gold exploration and development company operating primarily in Burkina Faso, West Africa. The company is currently concentrating its efforts on establishing a compliant resource at one or more of it’s three current projects. The 38-square km Bouboulou project comprises no less than five established gold zones contained within three separate 5-km long gold trends. The adjacent 250-square km Rakounga gold concession extends the Bouboulou gold trends and currently contains three drill tested zones of mineralization. The Niangouela gold concession is a 178-square km project featuring high-grade gold occurring in and around a primary quartz vein and associated shear zone approximately one km in length.

Why use a Captive Insurance Company to midigate risk?

Photo of Stuart Chamberlin

Stuart Chamberlin, President at Chamberlin Financial

Captives are formed to cover a wide range of risks; practically every risk underwritten by a commercial insurer can be provided by a captive.

Captives are really a form of self-insurance”

— Stuart Chamberlin

BOCA RATON, FL, US, June 22, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — A Captive Insurance Company (captive or CIC) is a property and casualty insurance company established to provide coverage primarily for a Parent Operating Company. Captives are an effective risk management strategy to insure against risk for which commercial insurance is not available or may be too expensive.

Examples of exposures often incorporated in captive insurance arrangements include enterprise risks such as business interruption resulting in loss of income due to: breach/release of data, deductible reimbursement, loss of licensure, legislative and regulatory changes, loss of franchise, reputational risk, supplier/supply chain interruption, etc.

Many operating companies face losses from these low frequency/high liability risks, which can be better managed through coverage from a captive insurance company rather than self-insuring. A policy issued by the captive insurance company will have the features and coverage's drafted to meet the specific risks unique to your business.

A little background on what a captive is an insurance company is. Captive insurance companies are wholly-owned by one or more non-insurance companies to insure the risks of its owner (or owners). Captives are really a form of self-insurance whereby the insurer is owned wholly by the insured.

They are typically established to meet the risk-management needs of the owners or members. Captives are formed to cover a wide range of risks; practically every risk underwritten by a commercial insurer can be provided by a captive.

To begin, let us be clear that captives are all about money. You want one to make money. It will cost money to have one. You will pay your own losses, come what may.

Captives are another method by which risk of loss is financed. They are not inherently mysterious, or illegal, or a silver bullet for all situations and have been around for over 100 years. The fact that the insured, or an entity closely related to the insured, is the owner/operator is a separate and distinct fact, which may or may not intrude on the captive transaction.

A Captive can also be used to cover gaps in coverage for business enterprise risk or interruption. Here are just some of the actual net loss Insurance policy scheduled events that can be covered with a captive.
There are many, many other considerations and structures to a captive. It can reinsure traditional lines such as workers compensation, general liability, auto liability, professional liability, and credit risk.

This is due to the relative ease and certainty of projecting losses and revenues with coverage's in which claim payments occur years after the incident of loss, known as long-tail losses. More and more captives are entering property fields or short-tail losses. The traditional view of restricting captives to long-tail business has encountered the reality of escalating prices and lack of availability.

A captive can also be used to provide coverage and limits not available in the market, such as credit risk and terrorism. The captive can provide a tax-sheltered approach to large retention's. If no certificate is required, it can accept direct placements.

Captives are highly regulated and are required to operate as bona fide insurance companies. Therefore, acceptable uninsured risks must be present before a captive insurance company can be formed.
Once the captive is operational, with coverage's designed to fit the insurance needs of the business, the captive owner or “insured” may be eligible for captive insurance tax advantages (namely with captives formed under IRC 831(b).

For example, $1,000,000 in earned profits are subject to a tax margin of at least 45%, and in some states, over 50%. This means, by not using a captive, at least 45% (or $450,000) is taxable, leaving you with a retainer of $550,000.

With a captive, you can retain the full $1,000,000. The monies are kept in the captive to cover unexpected losses. And if those losses don’t come to fruition, you can retain these funds as investment income.
Captive insurance tax benefits under IRC 831(b) have been a proven strategy for improving cash flow for many mid-market businesses. It has allowed business owners in the middle market to play on a more level playing field with large insurers.

Ultimately, the financial benefits to captive and alternative risk planning promote growth, sustainability, and resilience.

With considerable effort, there are occasional personal tax advantages that can be obtained with a captive, but these require a sophisticated, knowledgeable consultant, and there are the usual caveats about taxing bodies.
Some captives have performed so well for their owners that they have re-domesticated to the United States, filed for licensing as an admitted insurer, and offered primary coverage, replacing their risk-sharing partner.

Charitable Planning in Creating a Legacy

Photo of Stuart Chamberlin

Stuart Chamberlin, President at Chamberlin Financial

Charitable planned giving is one of the few programs available that provides a variety of tax and income benefits.

Someone's sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.”

— Warren Buffett

BOCA RATON, FL, US, June 22, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — When you think of charitable planning most people think it only benefits the charity and it serves. But there are many benefits on all sides when creating a legacy using charitable planning.

Charitable planning can be beneficial not only for tax and philanthropic benefits but for income planning as well. Think about how you could benefit from an immediate charitable income tax deduction. The deduction can be utilized to reduce your Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) by up to 50%. If the tax deduction is large enough that it cannot be utilized fully in the first year, the remaining amount can be carried forward for up to 5 additional years.

Examples of people who might be able to utilize these tax deductions are:

Annuity owners who would prefer NOT to pass along lump sum annuity gains to their heirs.

People who are taking RMD’s that they currently neither want nor need.

People who earn enough in social security, pension and other investment income that they are making quarterly tax payments.

Families who experience an unusual year of inflated income due to the sale of a business, real estate, or another type of windfall.

Put real dollars back in your pocket.

It’s Not Just for the Wealthy

By understanding the basic features of charitable gift annuities and charitable bargain installment sales, you can strategically unlock assets, create tax deductions and set up structured payments for your heirs while also supporting your favorite charities. These simple programs include:

1. The charitable bargain installment sale, which provides either an immediate or deferred structured income payout to your family for a set number of years.

2. The traditional charitable gift annuity, which creates an immediate or deferred lifetime payout for up to two individuals.

Unlock Qualified Money Potentially Tax-Free

Many people create this substantial charitable tax deduction then utilize it to unlock or re-characterize qualified money in a tax-free manner. For example, let’s say you have an adjusted gross income of $100,000.
You utilize existing cash assets to fund a charitable program that creates a $50,000 tax deduction.

The deduction can either be utilized to reduce your AGI, you can do a $50,000 Roth conversion or take a $50,000 qualified distribution, potentially without any tax consequences.

The charitable program also creates a structured inheritance without the costs of setting up or administering a trust. Overall, charitable planned giving is one of the few programs available that provides a variety of tax and income benefits and should be strongly considered as an additional planning tool for the individual or family.

"The Regional Analysis helps a lot to understand which Vendors are strong in which markets, with 52 vendors in the report overall, it was a great result for the top 5".”

— Jason Bryan CEO ROCCO

LONDON, UK, June 22, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — This is a historic research for ROCCO, as again the contribution from MNOs has been amazing with over 300 MNOs rating their vendors. A2P SMS clearly remains an important and effective way to send transactional or marketing SMS globally, which the whole industry is in support of.

Congratulations to all five Tier One Vendors who performed so well across the performance and leadership categories! Tier One means that across all categories these providers reached 4-5 points out of 5. The Vendor ratings were very close this year, with more promotion of this Research happening within the industry, this helped a lot to get the MNOs views across to us.

Whats new this year

Our Messaging Strategy Report 2018 which we published in April allowed us to get some new insights into the topics most important to MNOs and we adjusted our questions according to the data we uncovered. We added questions on Customer Satisfaction and Profitability of all messaging solutions.

Net Promoter Score

One new element to this years research was the net promoter score. Net Promoter Score®, or NPS®, measures customer experience and predicts business growth. This proven metric transformed the business world and now provides a core measurement for customer experience management programs. Including it in our research has helped us get a new perspective on what the MNOs think about the Vendors in the market.

Regional Analysis Annex

This year we have listened to clients who asked us last year to provide Regional Analysis of the data we have uncovered to show A2P SMS Leadership regionally. We have created a second version of the report which includes a 15 page annex on the regional variations for those who are interested.

A2P SMS Messaging Vendor Performance 2018

Between April and June 2018 we asked MNOs globally to give us their perceptions of A2P SMS Messaging Vendors, how well they knew them and how they would rate them. They rated Vendors on 35+ KPIs in the area of Performance and Leadership. The survey was about brand perception, experience of these providers as well as an understanding of whether MNOs would choose them over others.

With 52 Vendors there was tough competition. We started with around 48 providers, when MNOs wanted to include other Vendors we immediately updated the survey to include them, inviting all MNOs to comment.

The 369 MNOs who participated in the Research will receive their free Executive Summary Report shortly, thanks for your support and feedback, we hope you enjoy the data and insights into the Vendors.

MNOs can take part in other research and receive similar free Executive Summary reports from ROCCO. See here

More Research we are conducting

Customer Service 2018:

MNOs who would like to rate Vendors on specific Customer Service matters can take part in our 3nd Annual Customer Services Research which features all the Vendors here plus around 150 more, covering all Telecoms vendors we work with.

Take Part in our Customer Services Research here: https://www.research.net/r/ROCCOCS2018

Validating our data

It is normal that we receive Vendors who respond to the survey on behalf of their own company. Naturally we remove their responses. However this year we also found around 10% of the responses were not from MNOs, and 10% of the responses to the survey were illegitimate respondees. This clearly makes the data less clean so we have remove these responses too. We are looking for MNO specific responses from people who understand A2P SMS and have relationships with Vendors.

Our validation process is not light. We can see core information from the data we receive from the responder. The MNOs location can easily be verified with the IP address we capture. We also get concerned when we see inconsistent data in the survey, contradictory responses and responses made in a hurry and we always contact the MNO in this case to verify their data.

In the 4 years we have been providing ROCCO Research we have acquired the participation of 500+ Operators and we think this is because of the trust we have developed with our networks and long lasting relationships with Operators. We provide something for free to MNOs for sharing with us their views.

What we do, which we believe is more important, is to ask the questions and facilitate the findings this kind of research provides and let the MNOs speak for themselves. This report is sponsored only by ROCCO and always will be. Since we sponsor our own research we sell our Strategic Analysis reports to cover our Research costs.

Tom Kellermann, Chief Cybersecurity Officer, Carbon Black, told us,

"Existing cybersecurity architectures are failing due to two macro trend cloud computing and mobility. The endpoint is inadequately secured and the adversary often has a footprint within one’s perimeter defenses. We must pursue a strategy of intrusion suppression wherein we can decrease dwell time and this detect, deceive, divert and hunt and adversary unbeknownst to the adversary. To achieve this an organization must: employ application whitelisting, employ an endpoint protection platform, establish a Hunt Team and roll out deception grids.”


Samir Shah, CEO, Cyberinc

Graham Porter, Dell EMC, Business Development Director EMEA, Surveillance and Security

"We are seeing changes driven by mutations in the nature of terrorist threats and these have created needs for Critical Infrastructure property owners and operators to align their protection and safety regimes with advice received from two main sources – the Police and liability insurers/re-assurance organisations.

In Europe, we are seeing the movement from asset protection in transportation venues toward the need to protect un-checked crowds in areas such as Check-in areas of airports, luggage drop-off zones and assembly points around terminal buildings. The reasons are clear – historically, the security effort was aimed toward stopping criminal damage against airplanes and airport machinery on the part of the transport operators, and to stop theft and fraud in the cases of in-terminal retailers.

The need to identify persons of interest approaching and moving around airport and transportation facilities has become a priority need sought after by operators increasingly since the attacks at Zavantem, Belgium which was a terrorist crime perpetrated against crowds of innocent airport travelers in an area PRIOR to the areas where passengers passed through security equipment and search areas.

Historically, protecting planes and stopping luggage theft was a priority – and now the effort is expanded toward increasing the safety of the airplane travelers and luggage owners instead.

New European data and privacy laws effective from May 2018 (GDPR) have caused IT and data managers to review their policies and practices effectively in order to ensure the rights of any citizen to 'disappear' is balanced with the security requirement which has always been placed on Operators to know who is using their facility and to ensure they secure their crowded spaces. There is no doubt an increase in the cost of providing the safe traveler environment and the cost is seen usually as either an Airport Levy or local tax – which is seen as making transportation facility access more costly to travelers."

Jason Bradlee, Head Of Security, Fujitsu Americas

“Our co-creation approach is strategic and ensures we develop the right partnerships and expertise that will enable us to deliver transformational outcomes. We select our partners carefully using this methodology. Organizations are adopting various types of authentication to achieve the right mix of security, privacy and a differentiated user experience. Our partnership with ImageWare allows us to expand our Identity and Access Management offerings to provide our customers with more multi-factor authentication technologies."


Steven Humphreys, Chief Executive Officer, Identiv


"I think we’re all familiar with the convenience of the digital world — the world where Netflix knows what you want to watch next and Amazon knows what you're going to buy next. Identiv’s vision is to bring the benefits of the digital world to the physical world. We have a variety of products and go-to-market strategies that are putting us in a leading position to deliver those benefits. We see a major market opportunity as the physical world goes online, and we want to be the leading platform to get there. That's a big statement to make for a small company, but as you pointed out with those metrics, we’re in a great position to do just that."


Jim Miller, Chairman and CEO of ImageWare Systems


Jim Miller, Chairman and CEO of ImageWare Systems said, “Revenues in the quarter continued to reflect primarily our legacy business. However, we did see initial orders from several of our sales partners. Thus far in 2018 we have seen our first sales, although modest, under that model from our partners CDW, Fujitsu, Extenua and Avatier. While we have limited direct visibility on when sales projects will actually close, we do know that every project is making progress and our partners have given us good reason to believe that several will close in the second quarter,” Miller concluded.

Recently Announced Significant Events
 In April ImageWare received a $730,000 order from an existing customer for additional licenses of its Biometric Engine® identification software.

 In January, the company brought on board David Somerville as Sr. Vice President of Sales and Marketing to help the company to navigate the expected increase in worldwide sales activity. Mr. Somerville has over 20 years of high-level experience in the sales and support of security software."

Cyber Security is still a major concern for many European governments. Cybercrime is at an all time high and with many leading European cities becoming “Smart Cities” this is creating new opportunities for criminals to attack city computer systems and infrastructures.

Our 6th annual Cyber Intelligence Europe conference and exhibition will be taking place in Amsterdam on the 4th – 6th September 2018. The Netherlands has been attacked in recent years by cyber criminals. In January 2018 the national tax office and banks experienced a DDoS attack on their websites. They were also hit by the Ransomware attack in 2017 that targeted many European computer systems.

Cyber Intelligence Europe will provide in-depth presentations from leading government officials who create the cyber security strategies and policies for their nation. You will also hear case studies of successful threat intelligence work that stopped cybercrimes before they took place.

Now in it’s 6th year Cyber Intelligence Europe is the perfect opportunity to understand the challenges European governments face when dealing with cybercrimes on their infrastructures. Our event will also provide attendees with an insight into future threats that are predicted due to the constant development of IoT and Smart Cities.
