IMPACT OF RISING INTEREST RATE 

An increase in the interest rate has an immediate impact on the loan, resulting in a higher amount of repayment. Clients who are considering premium financing may encounter the following issues when it comes to rising interest rates: 

  • Diminishing effect on leveraging
  • Concerns on interest rate volatility
  • No more ‘cheap’ money
  • Outstanding loan will be deducted from the death benefit payout

WORRY LESS WITH A MORE FLEXIBLE PAYMENT APPROACH 

Multi-pay premium approach is an alternative option to pay for an insurance policy over a period of time, rather than paying the full premium upfront. This payment option allows clients to better manage personal or business cash flow and leverage capital to meet other investments or business needs. 

UTILIZING THE POWER OF MULTI-PAY

CASE STUDY

However, Mr Lo has concerns about interest rate volatility. He is uncertain about how much loan interest he has to pay, and how he should plan his cash flows to fund it.
