IDF Solutions Platform for Investment Managers

Taylor Insurance Series, LP platform solution delivers investors the ability to access top quality alternative investment managers and strategies on a tax-deferred basis through private placement variable annuity and life insurance contracts offered by global insurance companies.

The Taylor Insurance Series mission is to build a “world class” platform of alternative investment strategies and managers, sub-advised by leading investment firms, which comply with relevant IRS rules required to permit owners of private placement variable annuity and life insurance policies to access them.

Taylor Insurance Series offers investment managers interested in developing insurance dedicated funds, an attractive (speed/cost) alternative to building them directly.

Taylor Investment Advisors is an approved investment advisor on numerous global insurance company platforms.


As of March 31, 2017 Taylor Investment Advisors merged with Talson Capital Management.
