Wealth Plus – A Futuristic ULIP Plan
The world is a competitive place to live in. Our life is not sustained by survival of the fittest, but our capacity to fight the competition and come out as a winner. Everyone wants to succeed and progress, but when we actually step in, we are only struggling to survive. Only a few make it as they are more focussed and innovative.
This applies to all, not only us, but for everyone. You have to be focused, but also take risks. You have to think out of the box to make it larger. There will be many hurdles, obstacles in your path, but you have to walk. When I say focussed it means to work on your goals – as an individual, your career, happy family, financial security, and as a company your budgets, meeting targets, financial position, expansion, profits. Also, when you are working towards your goal, you need to make certain investments, so that you and your family are secured.
Innovation will give you the boost to go further more. You cannot just do one thing all the time for it will bore you, and in a tough competition you will not sustain. Innovation will give an edge over others.
When I talk about innovation, there is one company who has changed the ULIP sector.
Edelweiss Tokio Life Insurance launched ‘Wealth Plus’ Plan, a first of its kind Unit-Linked insurance plan, on 4th November. An industry-first, it offers extra allocations contributed by the insurer to the customer’s plan.
Edelweiss Tokio Life – Wealth Plus
It is a futuristic plan which caters to the new generation tech-savvy people who are on the go, and who demand differentiated, competitive and innovative product.
Edelweiss Tokio Life analyzed the need of today’s generation protection and growth, and thus co-evolved Wealth Plus along with PolicyBazaar (India’s largest insurance market place).
How is it different?
Edelweiss Tokio Life has not only done away with premium allocation and policy administration charges but furthermore contributes additional units on every premium paid by us thereby increasing our fund value. Additional allocation starts at 1% for the first five years and then increases every five years to 3%, 5%, and 7% thereby increasing our wealth.
• Under this plan, fund value is distributed between the below 2 funds:
1) Equity Large Cap Fund
2) Bond Fund
• This strategy provides the flexibility to:
1) Switch the invested amount amongst the available funds using the switching option.
2) Redirect the future premiums to the newly chosen fund using the redirection option.
This product gives you tax benefits which results in extra savings.
If there is a default in the payment of premium, there will be no penalties or charges levied against the beneficiary. And the accumulated amount can be redeemed after a period of five years.
Rising Star Benefit- For a parent like me, securing my children’s future is always on my mind when considering any investment plan. In Rising Star Benefit, the lump sum amount will be immediately paid to the family in the event of demise of the policy holder. All future premiums (if any) will immediately get invested into the fund allowing the corpus to grow faster thereby ensuring my child’s future is protected.
How is it Innovative?
Edelweiss Tokio Life takes care of one’s financial goals at various life stages, be it taking care of family’s future wealth, saving for retirement, family protection, or any other important milestone. It is the winner of the “Best Product Innovation” title by Fintelekt Insurance Awards 2017 and National Award for excellence in Insurance 2017.
There are loads of options available in the sea full of ULIPS. One gets confused which policy to choose from and thus turn to financial advisor for recommendations. People are way too apprehensive about the family’s future, thus start to make savings in every possible way so that the future is secure. Hence, when I came across this plan, I was rested assured about my investment and future.
