*The Retirement Wellness research, commissioned by DBS and Manulife represents the views of more than 6,000 non-retirees on their preparedness and expectations towards retirement. The research spans 6 countries: China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, India, Singapore and Taiwan. In Hong Kong, a total of 1,009 residents, aged 40 to 60 year old took part in the research which was conducted online by Nielsen in November 2015.


Mr. and Mrs. Client, both aged 50, currently have US$1,000,000 in liquid assets and 2 children. They plan to leave half their assets to their children while the other half is for enjoyment in retirement.

Instead of relying on their existing pool of assets, they could take a different approach and use life insurance. Mr. and Mrs. Client use US$360,000 to purchase a life insurance policy on Mr. Client with a Sum Insured of US$1,000,000#, naming their children as equal beneficiaries.

Mr. and Mrs. Client now have US$640,000, which they can use for their retirement lifestyle while having the peace of mind knowing that their children will share a legacy of US$1,000,000#.
