LifeSense, however, has the knowledge and expertise required to help you navigate the various pitfalls associated with endowment policies, for maximum return on investment.
What Are Endowment Policies?
An endowment policy is a unique investment vehicle that is essentially a contract between you and a provider. In exchange for a pre-determined capital investment, the insurance company guarantees you a lump sum when the agreement reaches maturity (after an agreed upon period), or in the case of a predetermined event (such as death or disability). The minimum statutory period of investment is five years, although endowment policies are usually only seen as viable for ten year or greater periods.
