Bajaj Allianz Shield Insurance Plan


Bajaj Allianz Shield Insurance is a single premium fixed-term unit-linked insurance plan or ULIP. In this plan, the premiums paid by you are invested in your choice of funds and the company allocates Units to you as per the unit price of the funds. On policy maturity, you get the Fund Value as on the maturity date.


ULIP is a combination of life insurance and market-linked investment. Thus it offers an opportunity to create wealth in the long term along with a life cover. Shield Insurance plan is a single premium plan, which means that you pay a lumpsum premium at the beginning of the policy, which gets invested for a fixed term.
