MUMBAI, 19 February, 2018 (Sachin Murdeshwar / GNS) : Bajaj Allianz Life Insurance Company Ltd., one of India’s leading private life insurer, launched a value-packed goal-based Unit-Linked Insurance Plan (ULIP) Bajaj Allianz Life Goal Assure, today. This new age ULIP has been designed to provide investment benefits and life cover to the life maximizers, the new generation of investors in India.
The new ULIP brings with it two unique benefits that are one-of-their-kinds for a ULIP in India. The Return of Mortality Charges (ROMC) feature of Bajaj Allianz Life Goal Assure guarantees that a policyholder will get back the cost of the life cover when the policy matures, thus enhancing the value of their corpus on maturity. Furthermore, at maturity, the customer who opts to receive the maturity benefit in installments (and not lump-sum) over a period of five years will receive the benefit of Return Enhancer which is an addition of 0.5% of each due installment. During this period, the customer’s fund value will continue to participate in the fund(s) of his/her choice.
Speaking at the launch of the new ULIP, Tarun Chugh, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Bajaj Allianz Life Insurance Company Ltd., said, “I believe our new age ULIP with its unique features will be a game changer for the industry. Today’s generation of retail investors, life maximizers as we identify them, have expanded the definition of LifeGoals and are looking for investment solutions that are value packed, convenient and backed by reliable investment performance. We are confident that the new product will offer a powerful proposition to new age investors.”
