Singlife Sure Invest, on the other hand, is an Investment-Linked Policy (ILP) that allows you to invest and be insured at the same time. We offer three portfolios under the plan, Conservative, Balanced, and Dynamic Portfolio, to suit customers with different risk profiles. The portfolios invest in a combination of ILP sub-funds and are managed by a professional fund manager from abrdn on the customer's behalf.
The portfolios are monitored regularly and are rebalanced to ensure the asset allocation does not deviate significantly from its target allocation as a result of market movement over time. The fund manager may change the portfolios' allocation and/or the ILP sub-funds from time to time ensuring that the investment stays relevant within the prevailing investment environment.

You will not be able to purchase the Singlife Sure Invest plan if you're assessed to lack the relevant knowledge and experience to understand the risks and features of unlisted SIPs.
As of 1 January, 2012, the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) has ruled that financial institutions must assess customers for their knowledge and experience in the risks and features of unlisted Specified Investment Products (SIPs). These products include investment-linked policies (ILPs) and unit trusts. This assessment will help determine if a customer should be allowed to purchase any of the aforementioned products.
As such, the Customer Knowledge Assessment (CKA) has been implemented to serve as a safeguard for customers. While MAS has existing provisions for customers to invest in SIPs despite failing CKA, Singlife currently does not allow those who have failed CKA to purchase SIPs.
We currently offer three discretionary managed model portfolios for customers with different risk profiles. The portfolios are the Conservative, Balanced, and Dynamic portfolios (the "Portfolios"). The Portfolios are managed by a professional asset manager on a discretionary basis and has full discretion in managing the Portfolios. You will invest in a single portfolio for each policy.
Key information of the Portfolios:
Rebalancing is a process of buying or selling respective ILP sub-fund(s), to achieve a target allocation and ensure that your portfolio remains relevant and consistent with the current investment environment and its risk profile. The asset manager is responsible for rebalancing the portfolio and no action is needed on your part. The asset manager may initiate a rebalancing to reflect a revised asset allocation view, or to take advantage of any market mispricing.
The basic benefit ensures that should an unfortunate event occur, such as death or terminal illness, the policy owner will always receive the total premiums paid (less partial withdrawals), regardless of market conditions.
As such, in the event of death or terminal illness, we will pay the higher of
Once the benefit has been paid, the policy will terminate.

At Singlife, we always strive to bring you the best in tech-powered solutions. We are currently reviewing other payment solutions to fund your Sure Invest plan.
There are two common ways of investing: systematic and non-systematic.
Systematic investing, also known as Dollar Cost Averaging (DCA), is a methodical approach that does not require monitoring of market trends, personal emotions or instinct. In DCA, you set aside a fixed amount for your monthly investments. If unit prices go down, you simply buy more units; if they go up, you buy fewer units.
Non-systematic investing means investing at irregular times and amounts. This can be more challenging as it will require close monitoring of market trends and prices to determine the most opportune time for investments.
Should you not be able to afford the time or expertise to monitor your investment, setting up a Recurring Single Premium (RSP) will allow you to leverage on the DCA principle of investing and potentially average out the unit cost of your investment. You can set up a RSP from as low as S$100 a month.
No, your policy will not go into default if your RSP stops.
Yes, your Singlife Sure Invest monthly statements are available via the Singlife App.
