What is Indexation in insurance?

Indexation is a complex-sounding term that is used to describe a relatively simple concept in the world of insurance. Here we’ll break down exactly how it can benefit you.

In a nutshell, indexation refers to a benefit payment that increases in proportion to the cost of living.

If the cost of living increases by 5% in a given year, an indexed insurance benefit will also increase by 5% so that you, or the listed beneficiary, – don’t lose out on purchasing power when the cost of living increases. Inflation Protection automatically increases your Life Insurance cover amount by 5% every year, or by the Consumer Price Index -whichever is greater.

August Market Update

 

 

A slowdown in manufacturing and continuing weakness in many emerging economies, as well as in Germany, has startled financial markets as we can see by the drop off in the first half of August. An escalation of the economic “cold war” between the US and China has threatened to derail global growth and affects markets globally.
