Celebrating 25 years of Dedication to Optimal Insurance Solutions

Sterling Resources, Ltd. operates exclusively within the life insurance industry, serving clients on a regional, national, and international basis. A continuation of a family insurance tradition which dates back to 1916, our domestic (Sterling Resources Insurance Agency, Inc.) and international (Sterling Resources International of Bermuda Limited) practices focus on wealth transfer and accumulation strategies for ultra-high net worth families.

Sterling specializes in the creative use of life insurance products within the estate planning environment to provide liquidity and to reduce gift, estate, and generation skipping taxes.  Our engagements include business continuity planning for closely-held businesses, analysis of existing individual life insurance portfolios, assessment of Private Placement solutions, and the design, implementation, and administration of split dollar insurance plans. 

Much of our work involves developing innovative solutions to challenging planning issues such as the evaluation and rescue of mature split dollar arrangements and working with foreign non-grantor trusts with Undistributed Net Income exposure. Our ability to develop customized planning tools allows us to tailor solutions for the most complex client need.

Our staff is composed of high-level insurance professionals with decades of experience in case analysis, field underwriting, and carrier negotiation.  Our Third Party Advisor practice, headed by an experienced tax attorney/CPA, assists attorneys, accountants, family offices and trustees with their clients’ estate planning, business succession and benefit program life insurance needs. 

As an integral part of the client’s advisory team, Sterling provides services that complement those of the client’s existing legal and financial advisors, allowing all to work collaboratively to help create a seamless planning experience for the client. Read More
