Foreign currency whole life insurance
Foreign currency-denominated whole life insurance is insurance in which the payment of insurance premiums, the investment of the accumulated portion, and the receipt of insurance claims are exchanged into a foreign currency (foreign currency) instead of the Japanese yen.
The main currencies are US dollars and Australian dollars, and the interest rates are higher than those denominated in yen under low-interest rates.
When paying insurance premiums, the yen is exchanged into foreign currency, and when receiving insurance money, foreign currency is exchanged into yen.
Variable whole life insurance
Variable whole life insurance is insurance with an investment element, in which a fixed amount of the insurance premium is invested in stocks or bonds by the insurance company, and the surrender value received by the policyholder increases or decreases depending on the investment results.
There is a minimum guaranteed death benefit for variable whole life insurance.
There are three types of variable life insurance: whole life, fixed term, and annuity.
