Conclusion For The HSBC Life Wealth Harvest

The AXA Wealth Accelerate is a competitive Investment-Linked Policy (ILP) in the market with strong retail and Accredited Investor funds. The AXA Wealth Accelerate invests 100% of your premium into the funds from day 1, unlike traditional ILPs which tend to invest 100% only after the 5th policy year (as well as having sub-funds managed by the insurers themselves). This main difference in fund management for traditional ILPs results in much longer break-even period (15 to 20 years at least).
