Zurich Investment Life Cover

Looking for reassurance that your loved ones will get back what you invested should you die within five years of starting your Zurich Portfolio?

Then the Zurich Investment Life Cover just could be the answer.

A Zurich Investment Life Cover plan might be right for you if you want to:

  • Protect the value of the money and any assets paid into your account(s) if you die before the end of the plan term.

  • Provide extra peace of mind if you’re investing in the stock market but worried about exposing your assets to the ups and downs of the stock market.

  • Add protection easily – there’s no underwriting and you won’t be asked to provide any medical evidence.

  • Make affordable payments - yearly plan costs are 0.1% of the plan cover amount.

  • Things to think about
    Zurich Investment Life Cover is not a renewable plan and only applies if you die during the five year plan term. The value of your Zurich Portfolio may go down at any time and therefore you may get back less than you invested.
  • Who can apply?

    To start this cover you need to:

    • be aged between 18 and 64 when the plan starts. If the plan is in joint names, these age restrictions apply to the youngest plan holder

    • be resident in the UK for tax purposes for the last six months

    • open a Zurich Portfolio and have one or more eligible accounts within your Zurich Portfolio

    • open a Zurich Cash Account (the plan charges will be deducted from this)

    • apply for a plan at the same time you start your Zurich Portfolio.
  • How it works
    Zurich Investment Life Cover pays out on any shortfall between the amount invested (less any withdrawals made, including adviser remuneration) in your Zurich Portfolio and its value should you die within five years of starting your Zurich Portfolio.
    This means your beneficiaries will get back what you invested if you die - reassuring if you have loved ones to look after.
