Want to exit from HDFC SL CREST Guaranteed NAV

POSTED BY ANI SAHA ON October 10, 2012 8:14 am COMMENTS (4)

I have already paid 2 premiums since Oct 2010 @ Rs50,000/- & now realsed it is a very much conservative investment and 3rd premium is due by 21st Oct. Whether I should continue or exit from the plan. If I decide for exit, then what should be my steps with less losses. My age is 47, spouse working, only dependent daughter age 8.  Please advise?

  1. This article might help in making a choice on continuing or discontinuing your HDFC Crest investment.


  2. no , you will get the minimum NAV only if you continue for 7 yrs . else the actual NAV. hence I suggest better get out of you can manage the fund using switches !

  3. In most of the ULIPs which were issued after Sept 2010 (when new guidelines came) , The general rule is that if you opt for not paying the premium before the lock in period of 5 yrs, then the current worth of the fund will be liquidated and kept under a fund called “Illiquid Funds account” and will be paid to you after the lock in period ,there might be a small charges even on this fund amount . With ICICI lifetime , its 0.5% .

      The fund value as of today is approx 90K and if I exit i.e do not pay further premiums then I will get it after Oct 2015. If I continue to pay for remaining 3 years and keeping in mind the minimum guaranteed NAV Rs.15.00 the losses may minimise – what is your comment?
