You can find the latest Whole Life Insurance Dividend Analysis here.
In 2013 we released the industry’s first public analysis on variation in dividends for major participating whole life insurance products. This analysis focuses on variation and trend of declared dividend interest rate at the seven most competitive life insurers who issue participating whole life and will publicly announce/disclose their dividend interest rate (more on this point later on).
We’ve long argued that this sort of analysis is the best gauge of potential cash value performance in a whole life policy because it allows us to review how the company has managed business and investment operations given the axiomatic assumption that these life insurers will move heaven and earth to deliver the highest dividend award to participating policyholders. This foundational assumption has substantiating legal precedents.
