Q&A: What Is An Investment-Linked Education Plan?

In this series, financial adviser Ms Phylise Er Jia Li answers some of the common questions first-time parents have regarding insurance plans and policies.

Q: What is an investment-linked education plan?

A: For an investment linked plan, the premiums paid generally covers life insurance protection and a certain allocation of the premiums will be used to also purchase investment units in an investment-linked fund. The price of the units (as such the performance of the investment-linked fund) depends on how the underlying investments in the fund perform. The value of your investment depends on the price of the investment-linked funds at the time you cash out your investment units. The amount of the sum insured can be chosen based on your needs and objectives.
