How to grow your assets when the outlook is uncertain?
Navigating global economic cycles is like journeying through life. There will always be unforeseen peaks and valleys. In the face of uncertainty, how can you protect your family by steadily growing your assets?
Protecting your family starts with accumulating your wealth. Ideally, when markets are volatile and interest rates are low, you would also complement long-term growth with life insurance protection. At the same time, many people share the goal of transferring their wealth to their loved ones in flexible and cost-effective ways. Reaching that goal takes careful planning. Pauline’s case below can help give you a better understanding of how legacy planning works.
An inheritance plan with a focus on long-term growth
Pauline, aged 40, and her husband just celebrated the 12th anniversary of their wedding. They have a 10-year-old daughter, Mary, who’s an only child. Pauline heads up the customer service department at a big company. Although she excels at balancing the demands of career and family, she understands that the future is often hard to predict. Her goal is to protect her family with life insurance while accumulating enough wealth to meet the requirements of different life stages. Another priority of hers is to acquire flexible legacy planning solutions that would allow her to help Mary meet future challenges. She therefore chooses an insurance plan that offers significant growth potential and long-term protection, with herself as the life insured and Mary as the beneficiary. The premium payment period is 5 years.
Note: “Age” means age next birthday. No extra premiums are required for the additional accidental death benefit. If the life insured passes away due to an accident before the age of 80, then beneficiary will receive an additional accidental death benefit equal to 30% of the premium paid for the basic plan.
|When she is 46, Pauline is involved in an accident. Even though she is safe at the end, the experience drives home the importance of planning one’s legacy in the face of life’s uncertainty. The below 2 hypotheses illustrate the potentially life-changing differences between having and not having insurance protection.|
HSBC Paramount Global Life Insurance Plan provides long-term potential return and an increasing total death benefit amount to help Pauline, Mary and her successor accumulate their wealth in the face of uncertain prospects. They can also exercise the Policy Value Management Option to lock in a portion of the policy value. By investing in growth assets, the plan offers them the advantages of tapping into long-term economic growth. It may be the right solution for you too.
