Should we expect a sustained enthusiasm for Unit Linked?
Since Unit linked creation in 1993, the evolution of collected premiums for this product has been variable. The product is highly dependent on both fiscal law and the stock market.
Let's see the variation in collected premiums at some milestones.
Today and tomorrow
Low interest rates and the introduction of the tax on securities accounts, introduced in 2018, offer a competitive advantage for unit linked products over all other investment products. An increase in premiums paid has already been observed in both 2017 and 2018. This competitive advantage will continue in the coming years, which should maintain the current enthusiasm of customers for Unit Linked.
Today the market offers Unit Linked products with a very varied choice of investment strategies. The customer can really find the product that matches his risk aversion. However, in view of the uncertain economic climate, it is expected that the customer will require certain guarantees. Hybrid products in class 44 (class 21 + class 23) could become more and more popular.
