Investments in equity up to 100%

Investment strategy

Applying passive investment strategy, the fund's assets are invested 100% in other equity risk-based funds, which are mainly following financial indices related to the reduction of the carbon footprint and supporting positive climate change. Investments are only permitted in "green" index funds that meet the conditions set out in Article 8 or 9 of the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR).
Investing in equities involves high risks, which can cause large fluctuations in the value of your assets.

Saving goal

Achieving returns as close as possible to global equity markets, taking into account the fund's objectives to have a positive impact on global climate change. This means that the value of the money invested in the pension fund depends directly on the performance of equity markets.

Why should I save for retirement?

The current pension system means that an ordinary pensioner will receive a pension that is only 40% of their salary before the retirement. By saving into the second and third pillars, you can expect to receive 60–70% of your pre-retirement income.
Now, we are going to receive less from the state in retirement than previous generations. In addition, life expectancy is increasing, which means that retirement lasts longer and having your own savings is more essential than ever.
Through being proactive, you can influence how your savings grow over time so you can plan your pension better.
The sooner you start to save for the retirement, the less you need to save every month.
