equity-linked policy

equity-linked policy
An insurance or assurance policy in which a proportion of the premiums paid are invested in equities. The surrender value of the policy is therefore the selling price of the equities purchased; as more premiums are paid the portfolio gets larger. Although investment returns may be considerably better on this type of policy than on a traditional endowment policy, the risk is greater, as the price of equities can fall dramatically reducing the value of the policy. With unit-linked policy, a much wider range of investments can be achieved and the risk is correspondingly reduced.
