Flexible Wealth Planning for Prosperity
With robust capital, you would always like to boost your wealth with a considerable return in long term. Prosperity III Universal Life Plan1 ("The Plan") is a saving-oriented life protection plan which facilitates your flexible financial planning and wealth accumulation at ease.
Single Premium to Gain Potential Return
After paying a lump sum of Basic Premium2, interest will be credited to the Account Value of the Policy at the end of each Policy Month on a monthly basis according to the Crediting Interest Rates determined by Hong Kong Life from time to time. 2 types of Crediting Interest Rates including Guaranteed Crediting Interest Rate3 and General Crediting Interest Rate4 are available. Account Value of the Policy will be calculated and accumulated according to the Crediting Interest Rates.
Guaranteed Crediting Interest Rate3
The Guaranteed Crediting Interest Rate will be applied to the Account Value of the Policy in the first 3 Policy Years from the Policy Date. The Guaranteed Crediting Interest Rate will be determined by Hong Kong Life on the Policy Date and is guaranteed in the first 3 Policy Years.
- General Crediting Interest Rate4
Starting from the 4th Policy Year and for the subsequent periods while the Policy is in force, the General Crediting Interest Rate will be applied to the Account Value of the Policy. The General Crediting Interest Rate is non-guaranteed and will be determined by Hong Kong Life from time to time. Thus, the non-guaranteed General Crediting Interest Rate can be zero at the worst case.
Special Bonus to Enhance Savings
Special Bonus will be credited to the Account Value of the Policy at the end of the 5th Policy Year to enhance your savings. The amount of the Special Bonus is equal to 3.5% of the Account Value of the Policy before the Credited Interest is credited for such Policy Month as at the end of the 5th Policy Year. The amount of the Special Bonus varies as it depends on the Account Value of the Policy and therefore the amount is not guaranteed.
Life Protection for Peace of Mind
If the Life Insured dies while the Policy is in force, the Death Benefit which is equal to 101% of the Account Value of the Policy will be paid to the Beneficiary.
However, no Surrender Value or Death Benefit will be payable when the Account Value of the Policy becomes zero or negative after deduction of relevant charges.
Flexible Wealth Management to Suit Your Needs
To add flexibility to your wealth management, the Plan specially offers Withdrawal5 arrangement. According to your own financial needs, you may make Withdrawal from the Account Value of the Policy at any time starting from the 1st Policy Year. The Account Value of the Policy will be reduced accordingly upon Withdrawal. There would be a maximum limit of 4 times per Policy Year for executing Withdrawal.
