Pivotal Select Estate Class is an enhanced segregated fund offering for investors wishing to protect their investment, while maintaining the growth potential of the markets. When approaching retirement, solid returns are desired to continually build your nest egg. By investing in segregated funds you can increase your growth potential while minimizing the risk to your assets. With Pivotal Select Estate Class you receive both death and maturity guarantees, providing capital security for both you and your loved ones.
With a 100% death benefit guarantee your estate is protected, even in substantial market downturns. In the event of your death your beneficiaries are guaranteed to receive 100% of your deposits (reduced proportionately for withdrawals). This valuable feature ensures your assets are protected regardless of market fluctuations.
Pivotal Select Estate Class also provides a 75% maturity guarantee, guaranteeing 75% of your deposits every 15 years of the contract. At the deposit maturity date you are guaranteed to receive the greater of market value or 75% of your net deposits (reduced proportionately for withdrawals). This limits potential losses and allows you to build your retirement portfolio with confidence.
Pivotal Select Estate Class gives you the flexibility and opportunity to reset benefit guarantees once every year up to your 80th birthday. Death and maturity benefit guarantees are initially based on your net deposits. If market value is higher than your current death benefit guarantee value you can choose to elect a reset. This feature allows you to protect your original investment, as well as the growth in your portfolio. Investors are encouraged to lock in performance gains through death and maturity benefit resets.
If you have named a beneficiary other than your estate, proceeds of the contract are paid directly to the beneficiary, bypassing probate. Probate can be a time consuming and expensive legal process as most governments charge a costly probate fee. As long as your named beneficiary survives you, the benefits from this policy do not pass into the estate upon death. This feature also serves to protect investor privacy, once a will is probated it becomes a publicly available record in the province of residence. This reduces the stress on your loved ones, resulting in a very effective estate planning solution.
Pivotal Select Estate Class may be protected from the claims of creditors. Self-employed professionals and business owners should protect their personal holdings from professional liability. In the event of bankruptcy or lawsuit your personal assets may be protected from seizure if you have named your spouse, child, parent or grandchild as beneficiary.
