ZA Bank debuts savings insurance at up to 2.5% p.a.[1] guaranteed rate

Returns calculated daily with zero fees for early surrender anytime

 

Hong Kong’s No.1 virtual bank ZA Bank[2] today unveiled a new savings insurance plan in collaboration with virtual insurer ZA Insure. The offering comes with a guaranteed return rate of up to 2.5% p.a.[1], enabling users to achieve “capital protection” and “wealth accumulation” at the same time and in a flexible way.

ZA Savings Insurance[3] (the “Plan”) includes the following features:

  1. 100% guaranteed returns: The Plan is a 3-year HKD savings insurance plan with a single premium payment term. Users can enjoy guaranteed returns of up to 2.5% p.a.[1] upon maturity, protecting themselves from inflation with ease through stable capital growth.
  2. Saving in your way: Traditional savings insurance products often require a 5-figure minimum premium, and if the policy holder surrenders the policy before maturity, the benefit amount may be considerably less than the premiums paid, which fails to address some people’s needs. “ZA Savings Insurance” is currently the protection plan with the lowest entry requirement in town[4], with an objective to close the protection gap at affordable prices. Users can start their savings plan even with a premium as low as HKD 1. The Plan also allows users to withdraw their money from the policy without any charges.
  3. Savings that grow every day: The guaranteed cash value of the Plan is compounded on a daily basis. Users can make every penny they earn count.

Calvin Ng, Co-Head of Retail Banking at ZA Bank, said: “Not only ZA Bank is the leader of the virtual banking industry in terms of user base and deposit amount, we are also the only virtual bank in town that offers bancassurance products. Being the ‘Game Changer’ means we dare to challenge the status quo as we keep on striving for the best. Therefore, we decided to introduce a savings insurance product which offers protection and stable growth in a flexible manner. In the face of rising prices, protection against inflation has been a lasting concern among users. The launch of ‘ZA Savings Insurance’ is particularly meaningful, taking us one step further towards becoming users’ main bank.” 

Ng continued: “Our flagship product ‘ZA Savings Go’ has been well received by users, and that gave us inspiration when we were designing ‘ZA Savings Insurance’. The rollout of this product marks yet another breakthrough in our product innovation. We hope ‘ZA Savings Insurance’ can assist users in reaching their financial goals gradually.”

With a maximum premium of HKD 500,000, “ZA Savings Insurance” also provides life protection. In the case of any unfortunate events during the policy period, the Plan offers a death benefit[5] protection. The Plan has a limited quota and is available on a first-come-first-served basis. Starting from today, both existing and new users can register to enter the waitlist through ZA Bank’s official website or via ZA Bank App. Successfully registered users will receive a notification when the Plan is available on 13 December 2021.
