Life Assurance – an Investment Tool for the Expat in Portugal

But what is Life Assurance?

Life assurance and life insurance are sometimes used interchangeably, but life assurance is more of a wealth management tool, allowing for beneficial tax treatment and flexible inheritance and legacy planning and more.

It is important to understand these factors: whereas life insurance only ever pays out in the event of death and a consequent claim, life assurance crosses the boundary between insurance and investment and is optimised towards achieving long-term and tax-efficient growth to pay out either a guaranteed minimum sum or its investment valuation, plus the value of any additional annual bonuses paid by the life assurance company.

Life Assurance Portugal

Many of the tax and inheritance planning advantages offered by Portuguese life assurance products are not to be found even in the conventional investment portfolios of Non-Habitual Residents.

All sums invested in a Portuguese life assurance contract are exempt from tax once the contract reaches maturity or is ended by the death policyholder.
