Life insurance: which contracts offer the lowest unit-linked management fees on the market?

What management fees are we talking about exactly?

Let’s be clear, it’s about compare the management fees applied by life insurance contracts on unit-linked outstandings. It is therefore not a question of comparing internal management fees to unit-linked funds (ETFs vs traditional funds and others). If this last point is useful, it is not the subject of this article. Before putting in the plow, the oxen must be brought in. The new regulations concerning the standardized presentation of costs in life insurance, based on a desire for transparency, pushes savers a little further into the fog of costs. These same units of account (for example a given ETF) can be invested via different life insurance contracts, applying separate management fees at the contract level. The internal management fees of the fund (ETF) are invariant regardless of the contract. The first level of management fees to be studied is therefore that of life insurance contracts, and not that of the internal costs of the funds.

Certainly, this contract is special because it only offers 7 units of account, including the 3 SCPI CORUM. It is not suitable for all savers, since it is necessary to expose oneself to financial risks in order to place on this contract (SCPI and bond funds), but it at least has the merit of existing.
