What is KBC Life Solutions?
KBC Life Solutions is a flexible unit-linked (class 23) product that combines the benefits of life insurance and an investment. This offers you the possibility of a potentially higher return, but of course entails a certain degree of risk. And because KBC Life Solutions is a unit-linked life insurance product, you can also designate a specific beneficiary. For example, you could leave the money to your grandchildren.
How does it work?
With KBC Life Solutions, you can choose from a wide range of investment funds without a maturity date, capital protection or guaranteed return. Given that the return depends on the investment results generated by your mix of funds, the value of the assets you invest may fluctuate over time. If you take out this insurance, you’ll bear the entire financial risk.
Enjoy total flexibility
No minimum initial investment is required – everything depends on your specific situation. You decide how your payment is distributed among one or more selected funds (taking account of your investment profile). Furthermore, you decide when and how much you pay in, either as a lump-sum or in the form of regular payments. You can also withdraw your accumulated reserve free of charge at any time.
It’s possible to pay your KBC non-life insurance premiums with your deposits in KBC Life Solutions. This provides extra convenience because you don't have to set aside the money for those premiums in a current account or savings account. In addition, you'll no longer have to worry about the admin involved with making these payments.
Upon your death, the money you invest in this unit-linked (class 23) product can quickly be made available to the beneficiary/beneficiaries named in your insurance policy. You can also save on inheritance tax by using this product to bequeath some of your assets to your grandchildren upon your death.
