ICICI Pru Wealth Builder II is a unit linked insurance plan (ULIP). It has high charges during the initial years. Premium allocation charge is 6 per cent for the first year, 5 per cent for the second year, 4 per cent for 3rd,4th and 5th year. It will reduce to 2 per cent per annum from 6th year and onwards.

We believe that insurance products with a combination of insurance and investment fail to do justice to both insurance and investment needs. Such products typically offers very little insurance cover. They also fail as a pure investment product because they deduct a lot of charges towards insurance and other expenses.

We ask our readers to keep their investment and insurance needs separate. Always buy a term insurance plan to cover your life. Term insurance plans help you to buy a large life insurance cover with a small premium. Invest in equity mutual funds to meet your long-term financial goals.
