It provides you the most secure way to pass on your wealth!

Unlimited changes of Insured and protection of new Insured up to age 1282

After the 1st Policy Anniversary, you may change the Insured for unlimited times2. 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.

Policy Continuation Option (to the Beneficiary)3

Apart from unlimited changes of Insured2, the Plan specially provides “Policy Continuation Option”3. While the Insured is alive and the Policy is in force, the Policy Owner can assign a Beneficiary and upon the death of the Insured, the Beneficiary will become the new Policy Owner (if applicable) and the new Insured. Even if the Insured accidentally passes away, the Policy can still be passed on to the next generations. The coverage period will also be adjusted to age 128 of the new Insured.

Guaranteed breakeven period as short as 15 years#

The guaranteed breakeven period of Regent Elite Insurance Plan II (Premier) is as short as 15 years#. Even if the Policy value is withdrawn in early years, you can still enjoy the potential returns. The term of the Policy is up to age 128 of the Insured, which provides ultra long-term wealth growth opportunities and extends your wealth to next generations. The Plan provides guaranteed cash value, non-guaranteed reversionary bonus4 and non-guaranteed terminal bonus4, allowing your wealth to grow continuously.

#Guaranteed breakeven period refers to the Policy Year that the guaranteed cash value is equal to or greater than the total premiums paid9 by the end of that year for the first time. The 15-year guaranteed breakeven period is only applicable to Policy with net annual premium (after Large Size Discount (if applicable) and before any other premium discount (if any)) of USD 50,000 or above with 2 years premium payment period and annual premium payment mode.

Bonus Lock-in Options5

To protect your wealth against market volatility, you can choose to apply for one of the following Bonus Lock-in Options5 to transfer and accumulate the latest cash value of reversionary bonus4 and terminal bonus4 in the Bonus Lock-in Account or withdraw it in times of need. The cash value of reversionary bonus4 and terminal bonus4 which has been transferred to Bonus Lock-in Account will become guaranteed. This brings you a stable return and also allows you to earn interest13.

(1) Automatic Lock-in Option5

Starting from the 15th policy anniversary or the policy anniversary immediately follows the insured reaches the retirement age selected by you (must be 55 years old or above) (whichever is later), we will automatically transfer the latest cash value of reversionary bonus4 and terminal bonus4 which is equivalent to 8% of total premiums paid9 to the Bonus Lock-in Account after deduction of any Indebtedness on each policy anniversary, until the remaining cash value of reversionary bonus4 and terminal bonus4 falls which is equivalent to 30% of total premiums paid9 at certain policy anniversary.

(2) Manual Lock-in Option5

Starting from the 15th policy anniversary, you can apply to transfer the latest cash value of reversionary bonus4 and terminal bonus4 on your choice to the Bonus Lock-in Account after deduction of any Indebtedness on your designated policy anniversary(ies). 10% or above of the latest cash value of reversionary bonus4 and terminal bonus4 can be transferred each time, up to a total of 80%, while a 3-year or above interval between each transfer is required.

Flexible withdrawal of Policy value

At different stages of life, you can withdraw the Policy value flexibly according to your financial needs. You can withdraw cash in lump sum or by installments to implement your plans.

The cash amount from withdrawal of non-guaranteed reversionary bonus4 (if any), partial surrender is non-guaranteed. And this will result in a reduction in the units and guaranteed cash value (applicable to partial surrender), the face value and cash value of non-guaranteed reversionary bonuses4 and non-guaranteed terminal bonus4 (if any) that has been declared or may be paid in the future. The amount used in the calculation of death benefit will also be decreased accordingly. The Policy shall be terminated upon full surrender. Please refer to At-a-Glance Table for details of withdrawal arrangement.

Guaranteed cash value, non-guaranteed reversionary bonus4 and non-guaranteed terminal bonus4

In addition to the increases of guaranteed cash value over the years, Regent Elite Insurance Plan II (Premier) declares non-guaranteed reversionary bonus4 and non-guaranteed terminal bonus4 annually starting from the 1st Policy Anniversary. The Plan allows your wealth to grow continuously so as to earn a higher long-term return (please refer to At-a-Glance Table for details of non-guaranteed reversionary bonus4 and non-guaranteed terminal bonus4).

Guaranteed Cash Value The Plan provides guaranteed cash value to grow your wealth continuously. Please refer to the Policy Provisions for details of “Cash Values”.
Non-guaranteed Reversionary Bonus4 A non-guaranteed reversionary bonus4 may be declared from the Policy Year determined by the Company and at each subsequent Policy Anniversary under the Plan, provided that all premiums due have been paid up to each relevant Policy Anniversary and no premium holiday has ever been taken effect (if applicable). Non-guaranteed reversionary bonus4 and its amount may be declared at the sole discretion of the Company. Once declared, the declared face value of reversionary bonus4 will become guaranteed and forms a permanent addition to this Policy, whereas the cash value is not guaranteed. The cash value of non-guaranteed reversionary bonus4 (if any) can be withdrawn instantly or accumulated in the Policy. Once the cash value of reversionary bonus4 (if any) is withdrawn (whether in whole or in part), a corresponding cash value of terminal bonus4 (if any) will be withdrawn simultaneously.
Non-guaranteed Terminal Bonus4 A non-guaranteed terminal bonus4 may be declared from the Policy Year determined by the Company. Non-guaranteed terminal bonus4 and its amount may be paid at the sole discretion of the Company. A non-guaranteed terminal bonus4 will not be accumulated in the Policy and its amount will be updated in each declaration. Each declaration of non-guaranteed terminal bonus4 will be based on a number of factors, including but not limited to investment returns and market volatility, which may be greater or less than the previous amount declared.

Upon the death of the Insured, the face value of accumulated reversionary bonuses4 (if any) and the face value of non-guaranteed terminal bonus4 (if any) under the Policy will be used to calculate the amount of death benefit. Otherwise, upon partial surrender / full surrender, maturity, policy termination or exercising the Bonus Lock-in Options, we will pay the cash value of accumulated reversionary bonuses4 (if any) and the cash value of non-guaranteed terminal bonus4 (if any) under the Policy. These cash values are not guaranteed.

Please note that the interest on unpaid death benefit is not guaranteed, therefore interest may be less than expected and the actual payout period may be shorter than the selected period. Only lump sum death benefit is applicable if an assignment is made. If the Beneficiary(ies) die(s) while receiving the regular death benefit payments, the remaining amount will be paid to the Beneficiary(ies)’ estate.

Policy Owner may also request to receive the death benefit in lump sum. If the Policy Owner dies while receiving the regular death benefit payment, the remaining death benefit will be paid in a lump sum to the Policy Owner’s estate. This option is not available for the Policy with Policy Continuation Option being selected. Please refer to the Policy Provisions for details of death benefit settlement option.
  9. Total premiums paid refers to the total amount of premium(s) due and paid for the basic plan (After Large Size Discount (if applicable) and before any other premium discount (if any)).

If the amount of the premium deposit account is not sufficient to pay the premium due to a decrease in interest rate, the Policy Owner is required to make up the relevant premium difference. Otherwise, the Policy will be terminated or subject to an automatic premium loan. If the Insured passes away, the premium deposit account balance (if any) will be payable to the Policy Owner without any charge.
