RIVERWOODS, Ill., Oct. 06, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Federal Life Insurance Company (âthe Companyâ), an Illinois national airline with a history dating back to 1899, today announced a first private placement variable-of-its-kind annuity (PPVA) which offers broad exposure to Bitcoin and Ether. The Company has formed a Dedicated Insurance Fund (IDF) to support the PPVA which will allow investment advisers, on behalf of their clients, to allocate a portion of their variable annuity contract to a portfolio consisting primarily of Bitcoin, Ether and other crypto assets. This private placement product is available to accredited investors and will provide Advisors with a one-of-a-kind resource to provide clients who are looking for other ways to gain exposure to the evolving digital money space.
âIn today’s environment, where the market capitalization of digital currencies has exceeded $ 2 trillion, it is undeniable that investors are looking to evolve and gain exposure to this dynamic asset class. We have merged the appetite for digital currency with a familiar and proven product in the tax-efficient variable annuity. With approximately 13.6 million accredited investor households in the United States, many of whom are already mindful of the digital currency space, we can help the advisor market provide a one-stop solution to meet the needs of their clients.

We applaud Federal Life for being an innovator in the insurance and variable annuities channel for these crypto exposures by leveraging the WisdomTree model portfolios. “
