After a few tranches that were sold out in days, Gro Capital Ease is back. A non-participating, 3-year endowment plan, Gro Capital Ease offers a guaranteed yield at maturity of 1.58% p.a.1 that will be paid out at the end of the 3-year policy term if the insured survives at the end of the policy term, with no policy alterations or claims made during the entire policy term. This provides a guaranteed maturity benefit of 104.82%2 (rounded to the nearest 2 decimal places) of the single premium, based on the guaranteed yield at maturity of 1.58% p.a.1
Given that the returns and capital are guaranteed as long as the plan is kept to maturity, it is a popular option for those looking to set aside some funds over the next few years. The use of Supplementary Retirement Scheme (SRS) funds is also allowed for this plan. Apply online easily with a single premium from as low as $5,000. Note that this is a limited tranche so it is first come, first served.

|Premium Type||Single Premium|
|Minimum Single Premium||$5,000 (if applied online)|

If a person puts in $100,000, he/she will receive $104,815 at the end of the 3 years, guaranteed, provided that they survive at the end of the policy term, with no policy alterations or claims made during the entire policy term. In the unfortunate event that person dies after one year from the cover start date, the Death Benefit of 105% of the net single premium means that he/she will receive $105,000.
Use of SRS
As one’s income grows, tax planning becomes more relevant, and SRS is a great place for one to set aside savings for the longer term and reduce tax obligations. Unfortunately, SRS accounts give practically little to no returns at only 0.05% p.a. interest.
It may be of interest to those with SRS savings to consider Gro Capital Ease as it offers a guaranteed yield at maturity of 1.58% p.a.1
No medical underwriting is required, and online application is fuss-free. As mentioned, such products tend to get sold out quickly, so apply as soon as you have made up your mind.
During such volatile economic times, Gro Capital Ease is an option you may consider for guaranteed returns, as long as you are able to keep this plan to maturity.
