Features dual benefits of guaranteed annual income and potential RMB appreciation

Product information: http://www.aviva.com.hk/tc/product/protection-and-savings/index.html#WealthGainer-plan

The continued appreciation of Reminbi (RMB) in recent years has led to a surging demand for RMB insurance products. Subsequent to the successful launches of two short-term saving plans in the last two years, Aviva Hong Kong1 today announced the introduction of another RMB3 saving insurance plan ‘WealthGainer RMB Income Insurance Plan’ (‘WealthGainer RMB’) with annual guaranteed income. On top of the opportunity to leverage on the potential appreciation of RMB, the policyholders can also enjoy an on-going annual guaranteed cash income, making this new plan particularly suitable for those looking for stable return and diversified wealth management portfolio.

WealthGainer RMB requires only 2 years of premium payment, while providing coverage and income for a period of 10 policy years. Starting from the 2nd policy anniversary, WealthGainer RMB distributes guaranteed cash coupons4 which is equivalent to 5% of the Total Guaranteed Amount5. The policyholders can choose to leave the guaranteed cash coupons with Aviva for interest6 and wealth accumulation. Or they have the option to withdraw the guaranteed cash coupons anytime in meeting their financial needs. If the policyholders have prepaid the 2nd year premium7 during policy application, the guaranteed annualised return at maturity can be up to 2.8% p.a.8. In comparing with other RMB insurance products, the policy term of WealthGainer RMB is relatively modest. The policyholders will, therefore, be more flexible in their wealth management.

Application for WealthGainer RMB is simple and easy, as medical underwriting is waived. Adding that the policy can be issued for the life assured of up to age 70 (age next birthday), the plan can also be taken up by senior group or those to-be-retired. Besides, WealthGainer RMB also provides extra protection to the policyholders and their beloved ones. As a peace of mind, a Death Benefit9 will be paid to the beneficiary in lump sum in case of any unfortunate event that the life assured passes away.

To better cater for policyholders’ financial planning, the contract currency of WealthGainer RMB is Chinese Yuan (CNY) while premium and benefit settlement can be made in CNY or HKD. With the minimum annual premium as low as ¥20,383, the policyholders can start their saving plan with ease.

This plan is offered with limited quota10. For any enquiries about ‘WealthGainer RMB Income Insurance Plan’, please refer to the terms and conditions and product documentation, or call Aviva’s customer hotline on (852) 3550-9600.
