What are the key product risks?

Credit risk:

This product is a life insurance Policy issued by China Life (Overseas). Any Premium paid will become part of our assets and our financial strength will affect our ability to meet our contractual obligations to you under the Policy. Therefore this product is subject to our credit risk.

 

Early surrender risk:

The savings component of the Series is subject to risks and possible losses. Should you surrender the Policy early, you may receive an amount considerably less than the total amount of Premiums paid.

 

Exchange rate and currency risks:

Any Policy with foreign currencies involves risks, such as potential changes in political or economic conditions that may substantially affect the price or liquidity of a currency. The fluctuations in exchange rates may also cause financial losses to you during currency conversions. You should consider the potential currency and exchange rate risks before deciding which Policy currency you should take.

 

The Policy currency of the Series offers HKD and USD and MOP. Currency exchange rate can go up and down. If the Policy currency is USD but calculated in HKD or MOP, the calculation is subject to the exchange rate. There is a risk that you could lose a substantial portion of total value of the policy or benefit if the Policy currency depreciates substantially against your local currency. China Life (Overseas) will base on the prevailing market-based exchange rate of that respective currency to the Policy currency and/or from the relevant sources at the time of processing such conversion, which will be subject to change from time to time. Such exchange rate may be different from the exchange rate offered by the Bank.

 

Inflation risk:

The cost of living in the future may be higher than expected due to the effects of inflation. Therefore, your projected benefits and/or returns of the Series may be insufficient to meet your future needs even if we fulfill all of our contractual terms and obligations.

 

Non-payment of Premium /Automatic Premium Loan risk:

You should pay Premium(s) on time according to the selected Premium payment schedule. If the due Premium remains unpaid upon the expiry of the Grace Period, an Automatic Premium Loan will be taken out against the Policy to settle the unpaid Premium automatically. All Policy Loans are interest-bearing and calculated at a rate (as stated on China Life (Overseas) website www.chinalife.com.hk) to be declared by us from time to time. Interest accrued shall become a part of the Indebtedness. When the loan balance exceeds the guaranteed Cash Value of the basic plan of the Policy, the Policy will be lapsed and you will lose the related insurance coverage and suffer a financial loss. Under these circumstances, the Surrender Value of the Policy will be deducted to repay the outstanding loan balance (including interest), and the remaining value will be refunded to you.

 

Key exclusions & limitations:

This leaflet is for reference only. Please refer to the Policy Provision for the exact terms and conditions, limitations such as incontestability clause and suicide clause and the full list of Policy exclusions (if any) and contact the Bank’s staff.

 

Liquidity and withdrawal risk:

You are obliged to hold the Policy and pay the Premium for the designated period of time. If you terminate the Policy prior to the Policy Maturity Date, you will suffer a financial loss. In case you make partial withdrawals from the Policy, your account value, death benefit and other Policy values will be reduced, and you may need to pay the relevant handling fee or charges (if any).

 

Non-guaranteed benefit:

This Series consists of non-guaranteed benefits and/or returns. The actual amounts of benefits and/or returns in the future may be different from the benefits and/or returns which project on the product materials. The product materials are for illustrative purposes only.

 

Policy termination:

The Policy will be terminated if (a) the Insured passes away, (b) you do not pay the Premium within 31 days of the due date and the Policy has no Cash Value, or (c) the outstanding loan amount exceeds the guaranteed Cash Value of the Policy.
