General
What is an Endowment?
A product wrapper which is a long term saving vehicle
Will provide the investor with an accumulated capital amount
upon maturity
Ideal for investors with a high marginal tax rate
Maturity benefit is not guaranteed (as is with a life insurance
policy), but determined by the performance of the underlying
assets
General
Endowment
Insurer agrees to pay a benefit after a terms in exchange for a premium
(single/recurring)
Unit linked endowment (PSG’s endowment) without guaranteeing the
benefit
No life assured (second holder), but beneficiary nomination
Minimum investment period is five years
Sinking fund
Contract, other than a life investment, where the Insurer agrees to pay
savings as a “tax free” lump sum at the end of a period (usually 5 years),
no life assured, beneficiaries do not have the option of taking the policy
value in cash upon death of the investor. In case of the insurer being
liquidated, the investor as a claim against the insurer in terms of the
Insolvency Act.

Pricing
All life investment products are taxed according to the “four
fund approach”
That means a life company classifies its clients into four
different tax categories
01 – Individuals 30%
02 – Companies 28%
03 – Trusts (taxed according to beneficiary status 01 or 02)
04 – Non taxable entities
The tax and fund fees are then taken out of the price and paid
on behalf of the member Admin and risk management fees
are generated by selling units from the client’s investment
A client in the Endowment will not receive an IT3(b) or IT3(c)
as the returns are not taxed in the hands of the investor, but in
the hands of the fund.
Pricing
Net Asset Value used (NAV)
Not the four fund approach as with the life funds
Since we are a LISP, we will make use of NAV pricing for most
of our investments
Where a fund does not have unit trust pricing, life pricing (four
fund approach) will be used according to the tax classification
(available to RA, ELLA, Pres Funds and Endowments)
Investments
Single Premium Endowment
Top ups subject to the 120% rule
Unlimited contributions in the first year
Minimum R50 000 initial lump sum (R20 000 for PSG Konsult and Online)
Can be phased in – daily/weekly/monthly phase ins
Recurring Premium Endowment
Minimum R500 monthly – subject to the 120% rule
Monthly, quarterly, half-yearly, yearly
Inflation rate CPI / 5% / 10% / 15% / 20% per annum
Collection date: previously only on the 1st of the month, now any day
• Once all requirements received and submitted, t+1 for
investment to settle
120% rule
During the first year, no restriction on top ups
Thereafter a top up may not exceed the higher of the total
contributions of the two previous years respectively by 120%
That means you add ALL the contributions to the policy up per
year for the last 2 years, then determine the higher, times
120%
120% rule example
Year 1 = R200 000
Year 2 = R100 000
Year 3 = ?
What can the investor add in year 3?
R200 000 X 120% = R240 000
R100 000 X 120% = R120 000
In year 3 the investor may add R240 000.
Let’s say the investor only adds R50 000 in year 3.
What can the investor add in year 4?
R50 000 X 120% = R60 000
R100 000 X 120% = R120 000
The client may add R120 000 in year 4.
