Tuesday, Mar 13, 2018 20:35

HONG KONG, March 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- FTLife Insurance Company Limited ("FTLife") launched the new Regent Insurance Plan 21 ("Regent 2") to provide customers with whole-life insurance protection until new insured reaches age 128 -- a first-in-market advantage to help grow wealth over an extended period of time. The new plan also offers a legacy planning solution for policyowners to allocate their wealth flexibly via assignment of beneficiaries and making provision such that the family wealth can pass on to the next generations endlessly.

CEO Gerard Yang said, "For the past decade, the number of high-net-worth individuals in mainland China has increased fourfold. Moreover, Hong Kong continued to have the largest concentration of wealthy population in mainland China. The wealthy customers are looking for wealth management solutions that help preserve wealth, provide comprehensive protection, and estate planning for the generations to come2. The newly launched 'Regent 2' enables policyowners to pass on benefits to the beneficiaries through a lump-sum payment, regular payments or a combination of a lump-sum payment with regular payments. It serves as a simple and straightforward solution to allocate and transfer wealth while eliminating all the hassle to deal with complicated inheritance procedures."

"Regent 2" brings six key advantages:

1.       First-in-market3 advantage to pass on your wealth infinitely: After the first policy anniversary, you may change the insured for unlimited times4. The coverage period will be adjusted to the 128th birthday of the new insured. Policy value would have sufficient time for wealth accumulation and can be passed on to the next generations infinitely.

2.       Terminal Dividend Lock In Option: By exercising the first-in-market3 "Automatic Lock In Option" or "Manual Lock In Option", you can accumulate the terminal dividend in the form of annual dividends. The converted terminal dividend will become guaranteed and bring you a stable return. The terminal dividend which has been converted into annual dividends can also earn interest.

3.       Premium Holiday: This plan offers first-in-market3 premium holiday up to 4 years to provide you with financial flexibility to deal with unexpected events and short-term needs without the need to worry about the immediate termination of the policy. 

4.       Free Premium Waiver: If the insured cum policyowner is between 18 and 60 years old, and diagnosed with total permanent disability5 before the age of 75; or if the insured is 17 years old or below, and the policyowner or contingent policyowner is diagnosed with total permanent disability or dies6 before the age of 75, FTLife will pay the future premiums of the basic plan up to USD 500,0007 to mitigate the burden of your loved ones.

5.       Accelerate Wealth Growth: In addition to guaranteed cash value, the plan distributes annual dividend8 starting from the first policy anniversary – payment starts comparatively early among similar products. Also, the total rate of return is among the tops of other products in the market9. The total projected return can be up to 6.82%10 at insured's age 128.

6.       The policyowner can choose a Death Benefit Settlement Option, either a lump-sum payment, regular payments, or a combination of a lump-sum payment and regular payments11, to allocate his/her assets to the beneficiaries. The policyowner can also opt for full surrender to receive either a lump-sum payment or regular payments12 to settle the surrender benefit.

Chief Product Officer Christine Yeung said, "FTLife enhances the products and services relentlessly to meet customers' demands and stay ahead of the market. 'Regent 2' is highly innovative and flexible. The newly added Premium Holiday allows policyonwers to make flexible financial arrangement to meet personal needs. The first-in-market Automatic Lock In Option turns expected returns into guarantee. Furthermore, the unlimited change of the insured and protection until the new insured reaches age 128 are the unique features provided by FTLife to help accumulate huge amounts of wealth through an incredibly long period of time." 

Choices of payment options & no medical underwriting

Regent Insurance Plan 2 (Prestige Version) provides premium payment periods of 3, 6, 12 and 15 years. If you opt for the 3-year premium payment period, you can choose to pay a single premium upfront.

You also have the option to settle the total premiums in full via a lump-sum payment if you opt for 2-year or 5-year premium payment period. Moreover, both versions require no medical check-up which simplifies the application process for you to start accumulating wealth at the earliest stage possible.

Premium discounts to further grow your wealth
