GIGANTIQ Review 2021: Etiqa's All-in-One Insurance Savings Plan

GIGANTIQ is an insurance savings plan by Tiq Insurance that gives you a guaranteed 0.7% p.a. returns. There's also a bonus 0.8% p.a. return which you'll get on the first $10,000, for your first policy year.

On top of that, you'll also get a death benefit which pays up to 105% of your account value in the unfortunate situation of your demise.

Basically, the GIGANTIQ is a unique financial instrument which allows you to accumulate and grow your wealth while providing assurance in the form of a life insurance coverage, which provides a death benefit.

Even if you're a complete personal finance noob, GIGANTIQ is a product that is easily accessible.

In fact, you can start enjoying returns by depositing $50 into your GIGANTIQ account. Yep, that's all it takes.

It's highly liquid too, which means that you can withdraw your money anytime as there is no lock-in period.

If you'd like to earn more returns, you can make top-ups to your GIGANTIQ account via a simple bank transfer.

That's probably why it's such a gigantic success amongst those looking for a place to store emergency funds.

      A good 2% P.A interest credited monthly for the first year. Transfers are also processed right away. Moving on to other companies after the first year, since 0.7% PA, meh...

      Easy to set up and decent yield of 2 percent for first year. A pity the yield will have to drop partly due to low interest environment. Hope will have better offer soon. thank u

      Been a user since sept 2020 and am glad that the interest rate still remain at 2% with no changes in policy. Its a good place to park money and not withdraw in this low interest enviornment unless there is a need to or if other services provide better interest rate.

      Applied for this for myself and my wife. The app is very engaging, though to track the balance, one has to use the Tiq by Etiqa app.

      How Does GIGANTIQ Work?

      By magic. LOL. JK.

      GIGANTIQ is a single premium, yearly renewable, universal life plan.

      It's a financial product that is a combination of a regular savings plan, insurance protection, and a traditional bank account.

      The rate of returns aren't as great as what you'd get with high-interest bank savings accounts, but in this low-interest rate environment... a guaranteed 0.7% p.a. rate of return is pretty decent, no?

      What Is the Highest Interest Rates for GIGANTIQ?

      GIGANTIQ's rate of returns are pretty straightforward.

      Effective from 1 August 2021 (inclusive) or your first policy anniversary date, whichever is later, the current crediting rate will be revised from 1.0% p.a. to 0.70% p.a.

      For the first $10,000 during your first policy year, you'll earn the guaranteed 0.7% p.a. + a bonus 0.8% p.a. rate of return (1.5% p.a.).

      Any other amount you put into your GIGANTIQ will just earn the guaranteed 0.7% p.a. rate of return.

      If you want to increase your rate of return... just make more top-ups into your GIGANTIQ account.

      The maximum amount which you can put into your GIGANTIQ account is $200,000.

      But wait!

      Before you throw all of your money into your GIGANTIQ account, take note that transactions fees will be charged for each partial withdrawal:

      • via PayNow: $0.70 per transaction
      • via Direct Credit (DBS or POSB): $0.50 per transaction

      You'll also have to keep at least $50 in your GIGANTIQ account at ALL TIMES because if you don't, your policy will be de-activated if your average daily account value for the calendar month falls below $50.

      An additional perk — that has yet to be released — is that you can earn up to 0.25% p.a. extra rate of return on the first $10,000 if you buy selected life or general insurance products which are offered as a supplementary rider under GIGANTIQ.

      How Much Insurance Coverage Do I Get With GIGANTIQ?

      If you suay suay die while your policy is still in effect, Etiqa will pay you 105% of your account value after subtracting whatever amount you owe them.

      They will also pay out 105% of your account value when the policy matures immediately before you turn 100 years old.

      Congratulations on turning 100, by the way!
