Thus, endowment insurance plans cover both death and maturity and help in creating savings.

Becoming a parent is like changing your entire world. It is considered to be among the most beautiful yet a difficult time that many people experience. Your responsibilities suddenly double up. Therefore, when embarking on this new adventure, preparation is a certainty and financial preparation starts with wise investments.
Buying life insurance can seem a little tough, but it is a certainty of life. So, before you make that choice, make sure you know what’s what. The reality is that both term and whole life insurance have their virtues. It’s just a matter of which will work best for you.

While social distancing is the norm, our digital distance has significantly reduced. We see multi-fold growth in digital adoption, across our daily activities – be it working, reading, teaching / studying, socializing, exercising or even cooking! We now turn to our devices and turn on video or voice capabilities to provide us with the necessary information, guidance, options and even interactions.
With the many joys of becoming a parent, comes the certainty of securing your child’s future. Every parent wants to safeguard their child’s future & make all their dreams come true.

This will also help meet your child’s educational needs which would otherwise be hard to cover.
