Hong Kong Life Insurance Premiums

The most common question asked in relation to life insurance plans in Hong Kong is often “how much will it cost?”

Unfortunately there is no easy way to answer this question as a large number of variables and complex equations are used to calculate the risk, and consequently the premium, of a Hong Kong life insurance plan.

Generally, two main criteria should be satisfied in relation to the premium of a policy. The cost should be adequate, to ensure that the end benefit and all other contractual obligations are covered, and the cost should be fair, so that the policyholder is providing payment in line with the associated risk.

In this section CCW Global will provide details on the various components of a life insurance premium, and how such premiums are calculated.
