The episode starts off with an introduction to indexed universal life insurance (IUL), what it is, how it works and why it came to be in the first place!

This product is widely sold through FMO's, IMO's and BGA's. It's heavily marketed as a “wonder drug” sort of product by a great many marketeers and they are entire life insurance sales and marketing systems built around using this product.
