What’s wrong with using insurance as an investment?

It is a very costly way to invest. There’s the cost of the insurance protection itself – which, by the way, is usually more expensive than what you would pay for a regular term insurance policy. There are the marketing and sales commissions. There’s also the “surrender charge” that may be levied if you decide to drop your policy within the first 10 years or so. The amount of a surrender charge varies by insurer and type of policy, but it is not uncommon for it to exceed the total amount of your first-year premium.
