The Bancorp Institutional Banking business provides financial professionals with innovative lending solutions, such as an Insurance-Backed Line of Credit (IBLOC), that can seamlessly integrate with their clients’ wealth management strategies. 

An IBLOC is resilient against outside forces such as market fluctuations when compared to other lines of credit and allows borrowers the freedom to access up to 95% of the cash value1 of their eligible whole life insurance policy2 at competitive rates and terms.

An IBLOC allows financial professionals to show clients they are a forward-thinking steward of their wealth management by educating them on how they can use this money to work for them. By participating in the webinar, attendees will:

  • Have a better understanding of the uses and benefits of an IBLOC
  • Have the tools to be able to talk to their clients about new ways to access liquidity
  • Will be able to build their clients’ confidence in their wealth management strategies.


Sponsored by: 

1. Subject to credit approval and underwriting.
