Generali launches new flagship product in Hong Kong
Generali has launched a new flagship product, Generali LionTycoon – a long-term participating savings and life plan that offers clients and their families wealth protection and growth opportunities, along with legacy planning.
 
The policy offers regular and flexible lock-in options for terminal dividend, and locked-in terminal dividends can be accumulated in a benefit accumulation account to secure market upside and earn non-guaranteed interest. A partial surrender amount can also be allocated to this account for interest accumulation. Savings in the benefit accumulation account can be withdrawn at any time to accommodate financial needs.
 
Customers can also choose to pass on wealth and protection to next generations. Once the policy is transferred, the coverage period will be adjusted to the age of 138 for the new insured and the policy values will continue to grow over time.
 
The policy offers a high projected return with a total internal rate of return of up to 7.14% per annum, allowing the total cash value to appreciate up to 10,000 times of total premiums paid at the end of year 138.
 
Generali LionTycoon offers premium payment terms of three, five, eight and 10 years, with a pre-payment option under three years. Minimum notional amount is $10,000 per policy.
