Fundamentally, Infinite banking is a very basic concept based on banking principles so as to reduce costs associated with financing and borrowing (don’t forget the added benefits Infinite Banking can have – Liquidity, Safety, Growth and Tax Benefits). With Infinite Banking the policy owner can take the position of lender and borrower (or just lender) and in essence remove the added expense of 3rd party lenders or potentially be the 3rd party lender. The result is potentially more money in your pocket. Although the concept is basic on the surface, there is much to understand when learning about and considering Infinite Banking.
