Makati City, Philippines - Manulife China Bank Life Assurance Corporation (MCBL), a joint venture between China Bank and Manulife Philippines, recently launched MCBL Invest, a variant of an existing investment-linked insurance product, created for clients who are looking for long-term investments with high-earning potential. MCBL Invest builds up the funds early, with a low entry fee, thus ensuring that full investment is achieved as early as the second year.
“MCBL Invest allows our clients the flexibility to make partial withdrawals to fund major expenses or add to their investment as the need arises,” said Robert Wyld, Manulife China Bank Life Assurance Corporation President and CEO. “It will allow them to fund their dreams, whether it’s to build their home, estate planning, or any other large future expense.”
MCBL Invest was designed for the gradual build-up of wealth through periodic premium payments. Clients can choose to either save a smaller amount spread over a longer period of time, or bigger amounts within a period they are more comfortable with. It also offers added protection benefits that cover policy owners in case of accidental death or total and permanent disability.
For more information about MCBL Invest, speak to any Financial Sales Associate assigned to any China Bank Branch or call Manulife Customer Care at (02) 884-7000, Monday to Friday, 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM or send an email to
