Private Wealth Portfolio

The five policies within the Hollard Private Wealth Portfolio support disciplined investing and offer flexibility.


Endowment policies for long-term investment

Our Endowment offering, The Hollard Private Wealth Portfolio, helps you save towards your long-term goals. It supports disciplined investing but gives you unlimited flexibility to change your investment particulars. If you have a marginal tax rate of at least 30% and five or more years to invest, this could be the savings solution for you.

The Private Wealth Portfolio has been structured into five policies to give you some liquidity during the investment term.
