MONEYLINE.SG Deductive Reasoning

What We Like

We like the fact that this plan has a single premium feature and is eligible for SRS placement, The projection for AIA is one of the highest in the industry and base on their track record, they do have a strong basis to deliver their 4.75% p.a. projection or even outperformed it.

AIA Retirement Saver III Par Fund

Base on the above figures, AIA has one of the highest par fund returns in the industry over the last 3 years, although we have to emphasize that historical performance may not be indicative of future returns.

What We Don’t

AIA lose out on their guaranteed returns as compared to some of its peers. Although the non-guaranteed returns are how people judge the credibility of the insurer, there will be many potential buyers that will scrutinize this point.

AIA also do not have premium waiver nor double guaranteed income payout in the event the assured were to suffer from a disability, this is definitely the Achilles heel of the plan as compared to its peers. However, the AIA Retirement Saver (III) allows the insured to waive his/her premium by adding in a Critical or Early Critical Illness Premium Waiver rider, these addition will be subjected to full medical underwriting.
