why trusts are prometed for life and not other assets?



Dear Group

A lot of life companies offer preperaded trust documents to place life
assurance policies in trust.
However I am yet to see a unit trust fund manager promoting pre prepared
trust deeds

My question is why?

Do life assurance polices fair better in trust some idea i have come up with

1, Is it for tax reasons as UK non qualifying life funds pay cgt at the rate
applicable to inssurance companies?

2, As they pay out on death. However could you not place other investments
such unit trust in trust for beneficiaries on your death.

3. Non income producing assets if units are not taken as income

Know any easy to read sources that explain the above to me

Thank you for your help
