Investment Portfolio Strategies
With AEGON Religare Investment (iMaximize) Plan you have the option to choose from two unique portfolio strategies:
1. Trigger Portfolio Strategy
2. Self Managed Portfolio Strategy
Trigger Portfolio Strategy AEGON Religare Unit Linked Plan offers a new Trigger Portfolio Strategy under which the premiums paid are invested in Accelerator Fund. As soon as the fund value under Accelerator Fund is equal to or more than 110% of all the premiums paid to date, the excess amount will be switched to Secure Fund. By doing this, the growth that has been achieved in the Accelerator Fund is always protected in the Secure Fund. This check is carried out on a daily basis as and when the Accelerator Fund is priced. Therefore, the growth is always protected, giving you complete peace of mind.
E.g. Policy was issued on 01.01.2012 with monthly premium of Rs. 100,000. On 29.01.2012 the fund value becomes Rs.120,000. In this case the excess amount i.e. Rs. 20,000 (120,000 – 100,000) will be switched to Secure Fund.
By doing this the growth that has been achieved in the Accelerator Fund moves in to the Secure Fund, which provides the security of very low volatility risk.
Self Managed Portfolio Strategy If you do not wish to invest in Trigger Portfolio Strategy and want to manage the investment fund on your own, you can opt for the ‘Self Managed Portfolio Strategy’. Under this strategy, you have the option to invest in any of the three investment funds available in any proportion.The investment funds are as below: Fund Type Objective Risk Return Profile Equities Fixed Interest Securities & Money Market Instruments Secure Fund Generate attractive investment income while providing the security of very low volatility risk since asset durations would be reasonably small. Conservative 0% 100% Stable Fund Aims to maintain a balance between equity and debt exposure, to have a stable and attractive long-term return. It will also shift allocation between debt and equity, to gain from asset price movements over medium to long-term. Moderate 20% – 80% 20% – 80% Accelerator Fund Invest in equities of various sectors to diversify the portfolio and generate attractive returns in the long-term. It also has the flexibility to invest in fixed interest assets and money market instruments up to 20% each. Aggressive 80% – 100% 0% – 20% Discontinuance Policy Fund If you fail to pay your regular ULIP premium during the first 5 policy years, the fund value after deducting the applicable discontinuance charge moves to this fund. The discontinuance value along with the interest earned is paid after completion of first 5 policy years. Currently the interest rate is 3.50% p.a.

Method of calculation of Unit Values (Valuation of Unit Linked Funds) The unit pricing shall be computed based on whether the company is purchasing (appropriation price) or selling (expropriation price) the assets in order to meet the day to day transactions of unit allocations and unit redemptions. When Appropriation price is applied The NAV of a unit linked fund will be the market value of investments held by the fund plus the expenses incurred in the purchase of the assets plus the value of any current assets plus any accrued income net of fund management charges less the value of any current liabilities less provisions, if any. This gives the net asset value of the fund. Dividing this by the number of units existing at the valuation date (before any new units are allocated), gives the unit price of the fund under consideration.
When Expropriation price is applied: The NAV of a unit linked fund will be the market value of investments held by the fund less the expenses incurred in the sale of the assets plus the value of any current assets plus any accrued income net of fund management charges less the value of any current liabilities less provisions, if any. This gives the net asset value of the fund. Dividing this by the number of units existing at the valuation date before any units are redeemed, gives the unit price of the fund under consideration.
Units will be created in the Investment Fund/s on receipt by the Company of the Policy Premium (except First Premium) alongwith a local cheque/demand draft payable at par at the place where the premium / application for switch is accepted by us on the following basis:
• the same day’s closing Unit Price shall be applicable if received before the Cut-off time (the “Same Day”)
• the next day’s closing Unit Price shall be applicable if received after the Cut-off time (the “Next Day”)
In respect of Policy Premiums (except First Premium) received with outstation cheques/demand drafts at the place where the ULIP premium is accepted by us , the closing unit price of the day on which cheques/ demand draft is realized shall be applicable.
In respect of First Premium, the applicable Unit Price will be of the date of commencement of policy or date of realization of the amount by the Company, whichever is later.
If the Same Day or the Next Day or the due date of the installment premium is not a Valuation Date, then the Company shall apply the Unit Price of the next immediate Valuation Date.
Units will be cancelled from the Investment Funds, when an application (including in respect of claims, discontinuance, maturity, switch, partial withdrawal) is received by the Company:
• at the same day’s closing Unit Price (the “Same Day”), if received before the cut-off time.
• at the next day’s closing Unit Price (the “Next Day”), if received after the cut-off time.
Company will follow the rounding off rules as given under for the computation of unit price and number of units:
• Unit Price will be computed to four decimal places.
• Number of Units will be computed to six decimal places.
Cut-off time is 3 p.m. as stipulated by IRDA.
