Two comprehensive savings plans that let customers prioritize guaranteed returns or potential growth

HONG KONG, Jan. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Manulife Hong Kong has launched two savings plans that help customers prioritize guaranteed returns or potential growth as they build wealth for the future. Customers can either choose ManuGrand Saver which offers them a higher guaranteed cash value for extra stability, or ManuImperial Saver for a higher non-guaranteed cash value for a potential higher return.

ManuGrand Saver suits those who value certainty in their financial planning while ManuImperial Saver targets those with a higher risk appetite. Both plans give customers the flexibility to lock in or withdraw gains, and an option to pass on their wealth to the next generation, along with life protection.

Wilton Kee, Chief Product Officer for Individual Financial Products at Manulife Hong Kong, said, "Wealth accumulation is one of the key pillars of financial planning. But it is rarely straightforward, as one's financial needs and priorities change at different life stages. With our new savings plans, you can choose a plan that suits your goals and your needs. Either way, you can grow your wealth with flexible options to realize gains, while also enjoying extra peace of mind through life protection for your family."

Both plans offer three ways for potential long-term savings. Customers can accumulate wealth steadily with guaranteed cash value; regularly with non-guaranteed annual dividends; and in the long term with a terminal bonus. In addition, customers also enjoy a range of flexible options during the saving period, which include:

  • Different ways to pay. Both plans offer customers various options for the payment period, options designed to help customers plan their futures more easily.
  • The option to lock in gains. To realize long-term savings gains without cashing in the policy, customers can lock in up to 50% of the terminal bonus on their policy anniversary, from the 15th year onwards. This amount is added to the annual dividend accumulation, where it earns interest and can be withdrawn as needed.
  • Flexible withdrawal options. If customers need extra cash flow, they can choose to withdraw the locked-in terminal bonus or any non-guaranteed annual dividends that have built up. They could also partially withdraw the guaranteed cash value and non-guaranteed terminal bonus by reducing the notional amount.
  • Passing wealth down to the next generation. Customers have the option to change the life insured to another loved one, enabling wealth to be passed on through one or more generations.

The ManuGrand Saver and ManuImperial Saver plans offer customers extra peace of mind with additional features. In addition to life protection, if the life insured passes away due to an accident within the first 5 policy years, an additional Accidental Death Benefit is payable to help relieve the financial burden on the family. It will be paid at an amount that is equal to 100% of the aggregate sum of relevant premium due and paid.

"We all have dreams: a comfortable home, our own business, or the best possible education for a beloved child. But to make these dreams a reality in the future, we need to get ready by putting the right savings solution in place as early as we can. Offering you a path to long-term savings, Manulife helps you grow your wealth to reach your life goals and even pass your wealth to future generations," said Mr. Kee. "No matter how far ahead you're looking, we can help you move forward with confidence."
