Savings plan that combines Investment and Life Insurance


What is a Endowment ?

An endowment investment is a long-term savings plan that combines investment and life insurance. In South Africa, endowment investments are often used for medium- to long-term savings goals, such as saving for a child's education, a down payment on a home, or retirement.

With an endowment investment, the investor makes regular contributions over a fixed period of 5 years. These contributions are invested in a portfolio of assets, such as stocks, bonds, and cash, selected by a professional fund manager. At the end of the investment term, the investor receives a lump sum payout, which is usually tax-free if the investment has been held for at least 5 years.

How does it work ?

An endowment life insurance policy works by offering the policyholder a payout at the end of a specified contract period, or a death benefit to their beneficiaries if the insured person passes away before the contract period is over. When an individual purchases an endowment life insurance policy, they agree to pay premiums over a set term, which can range from as short as five years to up to 30 years or until a certain age. Part of the premiums go toward funding the policy's death benefit, while the rest is invested. The amount of the premiums typically depends on the policy's benefit amount and contract term, with shorter terms often having higher premiums.
