The current crediting rate is 4.3% per annum (promotional campaign rate subject to changes. The usual rate is 4.0%) with guaranteed minimum crediting rate of 1.5% per annum. The minimum sum assured is USD 500,000 and this is a closed tranched plan. The first-day cash value is approximately 81% of the initial premium. Premium financing is available for leverage.

Pros of AIA Platinum Legacy

  1. The premium is competitive (but NOT the lowest) compared to other insurers’ universal life policy with the same underwriting class risk

Cons of AIA Platinum Legacy

  1. The minimum crediting rate is 1.5% and it is lower than most competitor’s minimum rate of 2%
  2. Insurance risk charge is until age 122 while some insurer’s charges are until age 100 only

As the current crediting rate of 4.3% is a promotional rate for the first 3 policy years, it is prudent to find out the projected outcome of AIA Platinum Legacy (especially at which age the plan will terminate) based on a lower crediting rate such as 3.75% or 3.25% per annum.
