Hong Kong New Capital 
Investment Entrant Scheme

With over a quarter-century of presence in Hong Kong and extensive experience in Asia, Heng An Standard Life (Asia) Limited (“HASL Asia”) specialises in wealth management insurance solutions. We distinguish ourselves as an outstanding insurer capable of onboarding customers from the region who seek to invest in Hong Kong and elsewhere through our investment-linked assurance schemes (“ILAS”), which are permissible investment assets under the new Capital Investment Entrant Scheme (the “CIES”). 

Upholding our brand proposition, “Get more from life”, we are committed to offering more to customers with wealth-focused insurance solutions along with professional financial services guided by third-party experts, catering to customers’ financial needs under the CIES.

An applicant must make an investment of a minimum of HK$30 million in permissible investment assets, including investing a minimum of HK$27 million in permissible financial assets and non-residential real estate, and placing HK$3 million into a new CIES Investment Portfolio, with a view to supporting the development of innovation and technology industries and other strategic industries.

Why HASL Asia ILAS as permissible investment assets under CIES?

As a leading wealth-focused insurance company, we take pride in our specialised capabilities in insurance and financial planning solutions. Our offerings are complemented by professional financial services, catering to your long-term financial needs and meeting the requirements of the CIES.

  • Diversified choices: HASL Asia is among the insurance companies in Hong Kong that offers the most investment-linked insurance investment choices*, with a total of over 300 investment choices covering various asset classes. These options include cash dividend, money market, and balanced investment choices. The policy currency options also include USD, HKD, EUR, GBP, JPY, AUD, and RMB. Investment choices and types will be added from time to time, providing a diverse range of investment choices for new CIES applicants.
  • Time efficiency: New CIES applicants can access through one ILAS policy a wide range of investment choices corresponding to the approved underlying funds regulated by the relevant authorities. There is no need for separate applications for each fund, resulting in a streamlined and time-efficient process.
  • Easy management: Managing investment choices under the policy is hassle-free, as no separate investment declarations are required. This streamlined process ensures convenience for customers. Moreover, our online portfolio platform, In+, provides a user-friendly interface to easily track and monitor the performance of their chosen investment choices portfolios.
  • Cost-efficient solution: Our policies offer customers unlimited free^ investment choice switches, providing the flexibility needed for new CIES applicants with a 7-year minimum investment period. This allows customers to adapt to changing market conditions without any extra costs. Additionally, ILAS is well-suited for long-term investments, making it an ideal choice for new CIES applicants.
  • Cash dividend investment choices: There is a growing demand for cash dividend investment choices, and we currently offer 52* cash dividend investment choices. Customers have the flexibility to withdraw cash dividends generated from their investment choices, and such withdrawals do not impact the new CIES investment requirements.
  • Global investment opportunities: Within the insurance framework, customers can seize global investment opportunities through diversified asset allocation, free from the limitations imposed by geography, currency or investment types.
  • Seamless inheritance: Once the application of permanent resident is approved, our policies offer the flexibility to transfer the policyholder or life insured as required (subject to terms and conditions). This feature greatly simplifies asset inheritance planning, ensuring a smooth transition of assets.
