*Please note:

  • The distribution of dividend of the corresponding underlying fund including the amount or rate of dividends or frequency of distribution are not guaranteed and is subject to the discretion of the corresponding underlying fund. The amount of cash dividend paid is not an indication or a projection or forecast of cash dividend to be paid in the future. 
  • The corresponding underlying fund of Investment Choices (Cash Distribution) may at its discretion pay dividend out of capital or gross income while charging / paying all or part of the underlying fund’s fees and expenses to / out of its capital of the underlying fund (i.e. effectively pay dividend out of capital). Such payment of dividends out of capital amounts to a return or withdrawal of part of the investor’s original investment or from any capital gains attributable to that original investment, and may result in an immediate reduction of the net asset value per share of the corresponding underlying fund after the distribution date of the underlying fund, which may have a negative impact on the prices of the respective Investment Choices (Cash Distribution). Please also note that a positive distribution yield does not imply a positive return. 
  • In comparison to investment choices that reinvest dividend, Investment Choices (Cash Distribution) pay out cash dividend and hence, the account value of the investment-linked insurance plan will be lower and it (i) will therefore lead to a lower amount of bonus (if applicable) ; (ii) may reduce the proceeds from death claim; and (iii) will lead to policy termination when the account value of the policy is insufficient to cover the relevant policy fees and charges due. You should not choose Investment Choices (Cash Distribution) unless you understand them and your financial advisor has explained to you how they are suitable for you.
