Sun Dollar Maximizer Emerging Asia Is Back

Sun Dollar Maximizer – Best Dollar Investment is back, now invested in Emerging Asia for a limited time offer – from February 5 to March 5, 2013. (This was last offered November 2012)

I actually posted this on Sun Life Policy Holders FaceBook group (for my clients only) I created solely for my clients. I truly believe that everyone especially those who weren’t able to dispose of their dollars at P44 – P45 because they were in time deposit will surely benefit from this.

Imagine if you have USD10,000.00 left in a time deposit in any commercial banks today. You probably got it when the exchange rate is around P45. At today’s price of P42, you’re already losing some P30,000 in value. So most likely you wouldn’t convert it at today’s price. You wouldn’t be needing it anyway, so you’ll just wait til it goes back to it’s old value. For how long, we don’t know.


Where would you put it then, for sure in Time Deposit. And if it’s in time deposit, you’re only receiving an interest of 0.75% to 0.85% per annum (subject to 20% withholding tax). It doesn’t even comes close to 1%.

What if someone tells you there’s a better alternative – Invest it! But with the word invest, normally it would mean that there’s a possibility that the capital is not even protected.

But what if there’s a financial product where the capital is protected – meaning, worst case scenario, you won’t lose the capital and on top of that, it has the potential to earn a lot more than what the banks can offer. Wouldn’t you be interested? I would be, for sure.

That’s actually what Sun Dollar Maximizer (Emerging Asia) is all about. And it’s greatest advantage is that, it will be invested in 8 high-growth Emerging Asian economies – China, South Korea, Taiwan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam and the Philippines. In essence, it’s very much diversified. Talk about not putting all your eggs in one basket.

Here’s the actual description/specification from Sun Life website.

Sun Dollar Maximizer (Emerging Asia) is a single pay, US dollar-denominated, investment-linked insurance product that matures in seven (7) years and allows you to participate in the equities of eight (8) high-growth Emerging Asian economiesChina, South Korea, Taiwan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam and the Philippines – without the fear of losing your capital.*
