With the 3 insurance savings plans that we introduced, it seems hard to beat such attractive offers. But we have something up our sleeves that can beat those 3 hands down. And that’s traded endowment!

If you haven’t heard about traded endowment, check out this traded endowment FAQ.

Traded endowments are actually pre-loved endowment plans that the original policyholder had to give up halfway before it has matured. Because of that, those who invests in traded endowments are able to reap the benefits of the previous policyholder for the number of years that he has already invested in the endowment plan.

While you don’t have the flexibility of withdrawing from the traded endowment anytime, the good thing is that traded endowments come with shorter maturity periods. This means you don’t have to worry that your money gets stuck in the traded endowment plan for too long! Not just that, the interest rate is also twice to quadruple of what you will earn with the 3 contenders that we listed above.

Interest Rate: 3% to 7.2%

Minimum Premium: Depends on the traded endowment plan

Maximum Account Value: Depends on the traded endowment plan

Top-Up Available?: No

Requirement: None

Who’s Eligible: Anyone
