The policy is bought mid-term and the premiums continued by the new owner. School fees are paid from the policy either when it matures or to borrow against from the insurance company at cheaper than commercial rates. A Scottish Amicable policy maturing in 1998 would be a typical example. The cost, including premiums until 1998, would be £20,564, but, based on present performance, could be worth £53,897.
