When you were in charge of NTUC, did your products have a breakeven point of 5 years?
If my memory was correct, most of the products have a break-even point of 5 to 8 years. They also provide a good yield to the customer, after 20 years, i.e. 5% or higher. So, most customers who bought the NTUC policies in the early days obtained a good deal. The high yield was possible due to low distribution cost, and a high rate of bonus distribution.
