“HKMC Retirement Solutions” Introduces New Product and Promotional Offers

The Hong Kong Mortgage Corporation Limited (HKMC) announced today (Wednesday) the launch of the Policy Reverse Mortgage Programme (PRMP) as a new product to its “HKMC Retirement Solutions”, and introduced a series of offers to promote the new product together with the Reverse Mortgage Programme (RMP) and the HKMC Annuity Plan1.

At today’s “HKMC Retirement Solutions” Expo launch ceremony, Mr Raymond Li, Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer of the HKMC, said, “The company is committed to promoting the development of retirement planning market. In the past few years, we have launched the RMP and the HKMC Annuity Plan, which have collectively helped over 10,000 Hong Kong citizens turn their assets amounting to more than HK$20 billion into stable stream of income, so as to support their retirement lives. Today, we further introduce the PRMP as another tool available in the market which can provide retirees with immediate, stable and lifelong stream of income for enhancing the quality of their retirement lives.”

The PRMP enables the borrowers to use life insurance policy as collateral to draw down loans. The borrowers can opt to receive monthly payouts either over a fixed period of time or throughout their lifetime. They may also borrow lump-sum payouts for specific purposes. In general, the borrowers do not need to repay the loans during their lifetime. After they have passed away, the lenders will use the amount recovered from the death benefits of the life insurance policy to repay the loans.

“The payout calculation of this product is based on its death benefits instead of its cash value. In other words, the PRMP can meet people’s retirement needs by converting assets, which supposed to be granted after death, into instant cash flows. It also possesses immediate, stable and lifelong features which are commonly shared by other products under the ‘HKMC Retirement Solutions’,” Mr Raymond Li added. The PRMP will open for applications from 30 May this year. Please refer to Annex A and B for its eligibility criteria, key features and costs.

Meanwhile, promotional offers will be introduced to further promote the “HKMC Retirement Solutions”:
