Heirloom (V) is the latest iteration of its Heirloom series. The UL plan is aimed at high net-worth individuals looking for strategies to grow and protect their wealth, provide timeline liquidity, diversify and balance their portfolios, and aid business continuity.

Leaving a legacy for generations to come

Heirloom (V) can be tailored to achieve any of the four financial needs:

1) Legacy Planning: Enhance your wealth and assets.

2) Estate Liquidity: Gain the liquidity you need to divide your estate equally without affecting business.

3) Portfolio Diversification: Spread out your investments and achieve the right balance in your portfolio for a peace of mind even in uncertain market conditions.

4) Business Continuity: Ensure the future of your business by protecting your most valuable employees.

Other key features include:

• Flexible changes to your life insured: For up to two years after the policy is issued: make unlimited changes to your life insured if the policy owner is a corporation; or make up to two changes to the life insured if the policy owner is an individual

• Flexible premium payments: Choose when to make a payment and how much to pay within pre-set limits based on policy value, death benefit and policy in-force duration

• Free partial withdrawals: Allowed without incurring surrender charges or reducing the face amount from policy year 11 (subject to a withdrawal limit of 5% of the policy value for a particular year)

• Six underwriting risk classes: Enjoy lower policy charges if you qualify for a preferential risk class
