Short premium payment term and low
entry fee, projected total cash value doubles every 10 years
Ultra (2-year pay) offers a premium payment term of just 2 years and an annual
premium as low as USD10,000, allowing customers to enjoy all benefits of the
plan without the burden of a long-term financial commitment. Premiums are
guaranteed to remain unchanged throughout the 2-year period. If customers choose to pay the 2-year premium in
full at the time of application, they can enjoy up to 4% p.a. guaranteed interest rate on
the prepaid premium, generating attractive additional returns in the current
low interest rate environment.
Apart from the guaranteed cash value, Wealth Ultra
(2-year pay) also provides two types of non-guaranteed bonuses -- the reversionary
bonus and the terminal bonus. Starting from the 6th policy year, the
total cash value is projected to double every 10 years
on average; and from the 82nd policy year, the total Internal Rate
of Return (IRR) for each policy year is expected to exceed 7%.
feature 1: No aggregate limit for bonus lock-in rate to best capture
Ultra (2-year pay) Bonus Lock-in Option allows customers to transfer the reversionary
bonus and terminal bonus to the bonus lock-in account, without partially
surrendering their policies. They can thus turn the non-guaranteed bonus into
guaranteed and earn up to 4% p.a. interest from it, avoiding potential
changes to the returns posed by market fluctuations and accelerating their wealth
Ultra (2-year pay) is particularly unique in the market as it offers no
lifetime aggregate limit for the lock-in rate. Customers can pass on the policy
to future generations without having to worry about exhausting the lock-in
rate. The plan also provides flexibility for customers to withdraw part or all
of the value from the bonus lock-in account anytime according to their needs.
feature 2: Flexi Continuation Option to support both life
protection and legacy planning
(2-year pay) allows changing the
insured for an unlimited number of times without affecting the policy value. The
insured period can be updated to age 138 of the latest insured, enabling
passing on wealth across generations.
The market-exclusive Flexi Continuation Option takes
care of both the life protection and legacy planning needs of customers. They
can designate a contingent insured in advance, so in the unfortunate event that
the initial insured passed away, the designated contingent insured will become
the new insured, and the pre-assigned portion of the policy value will be
passed on accordingly for wealth accumulation; and the remaining portion will
be payable to the designated beneficiaries in the form of compassionate benefit
for immediate financial support.
Mr. Kevin Chor, Chief Life and Health Insurance
Officer, AXA Hong Kong and Macau, said, "Last year we launched Wealth Ultra Savings Plan and
received very positive feedback and a number of awards. COVID has affected the
global market environment, disrupting the wealth management plans of many. We
understand that customers are hoping to achieve long-term financial growth with
short-term commitments, therefore we launch Wealth Ultra Savings Plan (2-year
pay) this year, providing them with competitive returns without requiring a
long-term payment. The plan comes with a Bonus Lock-in Option which enables customers
to capture market returns and not be affected by market volatility. Together
with the unlimited times for changing the insured and Flexi Continuation Option,
customers can enjoy the benefits of protection and cross-generation wealth accumulation
all at the same time."
