HSBC Life launches comprehensive retirement and legacy solution

HSBC Life Singapore has launched HSBC Life Sapphire Prestige Income, which allows individuals to grow wealth and build a lasting legacy for future generations.
  • Regular Income for life

  • Offers change of life insured of up to three times
  • Offers death and terminal illness cover with no medical examination required

HSBC Insurance (Singapore) Pte. Ltd. (HSBC Life Singapore) has launched HSBC Life Sapphire Prestige Income. A retirement and legacy plan, it allows individuals to grow wealth and build a lasting legacy for future generations while maintaining the quality of life for a sustainable retirement.

Global life expectancies are also raising, and many Singaporeans have reached a pivotal period of their lives. Not only are they starting to reach retirement age, and thus have a greater need to maintain a steady income for the years ahead, they are also concerned about financial planning and preserving wealth for their future generations.

The HSBC Life +Factor Study, which surveyed more than 2,000 people in Singapore between March and April 2021, found that more than a fifth of Singaporeans (21%) quoted retirement planning as a cause of stress and more than a third (36%) said that saving sufficient funds for retirement was a financial concern. Unsurprisingly, having sufficient savings for a rainy day or unexpected major expenses was the top driver of happiness in retirement for 61% of the respondents.

The HSBC Life Sapphire Prestige Income is single premium whole life income plan that allows individuals to sustain their wealth with a regular stream of income while building up cash value, as well as accumulate and transfer wealth seamlessly across generations.

HSBC Life Sapphire Prestige Income offers:

  • A stream of income and lump sum payout at maturity
  • Immediate guaranteed cash value equivalent to 80% of the single premium paid
  • Coverage for death and terminal illness with no medical examination required
  • Flexibility of choice of currency of both SGD and USD
  • Offers the option to replace the life insured up to three times during the policy term, for both corporate and individual policies.

Ho Lee Yen, Chief Executive Officer, HSBC Life Singapore says: “Our goal has always been to partner people in their health, wealth and wellness journey, and that includes giving them peace of mind when it comes to retirement and legacy planning. The HSBC Life Sapphire Prestige Income not only complements our customers’ savings to build sustainable wealth, but also helps them to build a legacy that will provide for future generations. Enabling them to enjoy the best of retirement while taking care of their family.”

Today’s announcement reflects an increased focus for HSBC Life Singapore to deliver a distinctive and holistic wealth and health planning experience to the evolving needs of Singaporeans. It is also aligned to the composition of Singapore’s insurance market which includes an ageing and wealthier domestic population and a rise in international citizens seeking more sophisticated wealth and insurance solutions.
