What is a Festival Advance Plan?

A Festival Advance Plan gives you the opportunity to save for your cherished moments such as anniversaries and birthdays. It pays a lump sum in a specific month of each year so you can afford your planned celebrations. It also pays a lump sum at the maturity of the policy.

The policy can run for 10 to 47 years depending on your choice. The Festival Advance Plan can also be used as a loan security at money lending institutions.
