Ans. A unit-linked insurance policy provides you greater transparency than the traditional life insurance policy. In a traditional policy you are not aware of how your money is invested, where it is invested, what is the value of your investment, etc. In a Unit Linked policy the underlying investments made by the policyholder are clearly identifiable and determine its cash values (Net Asset Value). Most of the organizations publish their NAV listings on a regular basis in the mainline publications, which will help you check the performance of your fund. Companies also mail quarterly newsletters to their customers that provide them a detailed analysis of the Fund performance.
