Some of you probably have head about GPP (global pension plan), the new fangled pyramid scheme “reverse pension plan” promising you 55,000 EUR with a membership fee of only 35 EUR. Check out this article for more details.
Also think about this:
Let’s say that 95% of the 100,000 members do live to be 65. That means that 95,000 policies will receive $200,000 or about $19 billion. Let’s assume the average time to payback the mortgage is 35 years, and that the interest rate is a low 7.5%. A $12 billion loan on those terms would mean a required payback of $150 billion, far far more than $19 billion.
It all sounds pretty plausible until you run the real numbers. The only way this would work is if the bank giving out the asset backed loan expects a 1.2% return on their money. That isn’t happening. No insurer or bank would back this absurd program.
