The more interesting version for financial planning would be the Child Wealth variant which has an in-built waiver of premium on death or permanent disability of the bread winner. This plan also offers periodic income to meet child’s education goals.

The give strategies offered by the fund include; Investor Selectable Portfolio strategy, Wheel of Life Portfolio strategy, Trigger Based Portfolio strategy, Auto Transfer Portfolio strategy and the Capital Preservation-Oriented Strategy. Customers can choose their pick.
