Systematic Transfer Plan

With STP, you can invest a specific amount in a regular fashion at monthly intervals. This gives you the advantage of rupee cost averaging.

With STP, you can invest a specific amount in a regular fashion at monthly intervals. This gives you the advantage of rupee cost averaging. You buy more units when markets are down and fewer units when markets are up, thereby reducing the average cost of purchase of units in the funds selected by you.

You have the option to choose STP option for 12 or 24 months.

How STP Works

In case of STP, the Single premium (net of allocation charges) will be first allocated to Liquid fund,

In case of STP, the Single premium (net of allocation charges) will be first allocated to Liquid fund, and then at the beginning of each policy month (monthiversary), a portion will be systematically switched to the funds chosen by you at inception. Every month 1/N of units will be transferred from Liquid fund to other funds as per the fund allocation proportion chosen by you; where N = number of months remaining under the STP scheme. You will have an option to choose STP for 12/24 months only.

For e.g.: A Policyholder chooses the STP option with premium allocation of 20% in Debt Fund and 80% in Growth Fund for STP of 12 months. Then for the first month 1/12 * 20% of units in Liquid fund will be switched to Debt Fund and 1/12 * 80% of units in Liquid Fund will be switched to Growth Fund. This transfer will happen after the deduction of all the charges for that monthiversary. For second month 1/11 * 20% of units in Liquid fund will be switched to Debt Fund and 1/11 * 80% of units in Liquid Fund will be switched to Growth Fund and so on each policy year.

If you are opting for more than one fund, the minimum investment in any fund should be at least 10% of the Single premium paid.

Life Stage Portfolio Strategy

46 – 50 40% 60%
51 – 55 45% 55%
