What is Unit-Linked life insurance?
Unit-Linked life insurance, also known as Wealth Assurance, Private Placement Life Insurance (PPLI), Branche 23 Fonds dédié/Tak 23 toegewezen fonds (Belgium), Ramo III private insurance solutions (Italy), assurance vie en unités de compte (France) is an established and internationally recognised tool for wealth, estate and succession planning.
A Unit-Linked life insurance contract can be invested in a variety of assets, both listed and non-listed, via a range of internal or external funds. It does not offer a guaranteed return as its value is directly linked to the performance of the underlying assets of the insurance policy and subject to market fluctuations. It is adaptable to the most complex of situations, and its robustness and flexibility make it highly complementary to other popular wealth management solutions. It can be tailored to suit the unique needs of individuals, their families and institutions, with the potential to enhance financial planning.
