Frequently Asked Questions :

The Account Value is the accumulation of the values from the Holding Account and the Growth Account. These values are increased by interest credited and decreased by applicable charges.

Sun Life invests in underlying equity-like investments in well-developed markets and will use the returns on these investments to support the Growth Account Crediting Interest Rate. The year-on-year actual Growth Account Crediting Interest Rate may be fluctuating within the Cap Rate and Growth Account Floor. Under certain circumstance, it may be zero due to the market downturn or even the impact of financial crisis. We reserve the right to change the rates at our discretion. For details, please refer to the product brochure.


The current Cap Rate is 9.10%, (as of January 2023) with a minimum guaranteed Cap Rate of 3.00%. The Cap Rate can be changed from time to time at our sole discretion and never decreases more than 0.5% year on year. It is affected by interest rate environment, market outlook, persistency experience.


The Growth Account Floor is always 0% and guaranteed not to be changed during benefit term.

*Growth Account Crediting Interest Rate is subject to Cap Rate and Growth Account Floor

A Segment is a part of Growth Account with a one-year Segment Term.

  1. It is created to receive a transfer from Holding Account on every 16th of a month and then deduct the monthly applicable charges and credit the applicable interest at Segment Maturity Date.
  2. To allow the client to enjoy a potentially higher return, each Segment would have its Growth Account Crediting Interest Rate which would be fluctuated and subject to Cap Rate and Growth Account Floor.
  3. It would roll into the new Segment automatically after one-year term from its start date.

DCAO is an option to helps smooth out the impact of market volatility by separating the allocation of Holding Account to Growth Account in different time points. With DCAO, a portion of Holding Account Value with respect to a premium after deducting applicable charges and interest credited is moved into the Growth Account over a 12-month period (instead of all at once at the start of a new Segment) such that the clients can possibly enjoy 12 different Growth Account Crediting Interest Rate in different period. Clients may choose to initiate this feature at the time of each Subsequent Premium payment.

No, the Holding Account Value would be transferred to the Growth Account on the 16th of next month automatically in one go except DCAO is applied. The Growth Account Value would never be transferred back to Holding Account.
