How Do Capital Guaranteed Investments Work?
Capital guarantee investments are becoming more popular because of their earning potential. However, as an investor, you would want to know what happens to your hard-earned income when you invest it in a policy. Hence, let’s understand how capital guarantee investments works in detail by considering the case of Mr. Mehra.
Mr. Mehra is 35, working as a government servant. He wishes to save for his dream house by finding the right investment vehicle. As a salaried man, he is worried about investing in market-linked products because of the volatile nature of returns.
He decides to play it safe by investing his money in a Capital Guarantee Solution. He makes a monthly investment of Rs. 20,000 for the next 5 years (premium payment term) and stays invested till the next 10 years(policy term)
Let’s take a look at both components of a Capital Guarantee Solution to understand how it works in both aspects for Mr. Mehra:
Since he invests Rs. 20,000 each month for the first 5 years of the capital guaranteed solution scheme, he will receive 100% of the amount at the age of 45, once the policy period is over. This means, irrespective of the market conditions during the capital guaranteed investment policy, he will receive Rs. 12,00,000 he invested as capital guarantee at age 45. As a result, the policy serves as a savings instrument for investors who wish to keep their money secure for a long time.
If we consider the rate of market returns @8%, Mr. Mehra will receive Market linked returns of Rs. 17,18,820 or Rs. 9,59,962 @4% at age 55. This means the total benefits will be Rs. 29,18,820 @8% and Rs. 21,59,962 @4%.
Apart from the guaranteed*#returns and market linked returns he will also enjoy life security for the entirety of the policy period. Notably, even though the capital guaranteed solution provides a 100 % capital guarantee*# , investors should consider the opportunity cost before investing to see if it fits with their financial goals. The market-linked returns on capital guaranteed solution will be lower than the returns on a pure ULIP plan for the same amount of money, so investors should keep that in mind.
Please note that the above assumed market-linked rates of returns, 4% and 8%, are only scenarios at these rates after recovering all applicable charges. These are not guaranteed and they are not the upper or lower limits of returns of the Funds selected in your policy, as the performance of the Funds is dependent on number of factors including future investment performance. For more information, please request for your policy specific illustration.
