Bonds backed by loans of a policyholder against a life insurance policy. The policyholder will repay the loans while alive or with the benefits from the insurance policy upon death.

Bonds secured by a pool of life insurance policies. Coupons on death-backed bonds come from the profit the insurance company derives from each life insurance policy. Death-backed bonds carry little risk because every life insurance policyholder eventually dies.
