Building a savings culture has become more strained at this time, however the need to save has definitely become more of a necessity than an option. With economic uncertainties, Old Mutual has developed a 2-year Savings product with Life Cover.
The experiences over the course of 2020/2021 have been a lesson in ensuring one protects their family, health, and livelihood. It has become more important to focus on a goal and work towards while at the same time ensuring you are covered from unpredictable circumstances. This special product allows an individual to save as well as obtain life cover up to 1 million Naira.
Old Mutual, the Nigerian subsidiary of Old Mutual Limited, pan-Africa's leading insurance firm and global financial services provider, has launched this in Nigeria to further support individuals, families, and small businesses in achieving and protecting their goals. This plan allows for a minimum monthly savings contribution of 5,000 Naira which can be increased annually.
In her remark, the Executive Head, Marketing and Customer Experience, Old Mutual Nigeria, Mrs. Alero Ladipo, said, "We are proud to introduce this well-researched product designed to enable individuals and businesses achieve their short-term financial objectives, particularly in these times of strong economic headwinds and still maintain a life cover. The Old Mutual Short Savings Plan has a dynamic feature that allows the policyholder to withdraw up to 50% of saved funds during the savings tenure as well as keep track of their balances to ensure goals are being met.
