Why universal life insurance may be the best choice for savings?

Universal life insurance is one type of insurance that typically offers a high level of insurance coverage coupled with a savings component: the premium paid by the policyholder is largely invested by the insurance company to increase cash value (each policy in any point in time has what is known as a cash value), which a policyholder can consider as an alternative asset class akin to a savings account or investment product, writes Yahoo Finance.
