What We Like

  • Secondary Life Insured (SLI) – SLI continues to accumulate your wealth and growing with them through their lifetime. Policy will only expire on the 100th birthday of the primary policyholder (which is you). Even if the primary policy holder is no longer around (death occurs), the plan will act as an ongoing wealth compounding interest garnering instrument for the SLI.

  • Capital guaranteed at Year 15 –  Capital is guaranteed once the policy reaches its 15th policy anniversary regardless of your premium term.

  • While you can withdraw the cash value of the policy at any life milestone, you get more value if you leave it in the plan and re-invest for the long term.
  • Guaranteed Issuance – No medical check-up, no health underwriting procedure. Issuance of the plan is guaranteed.
