How it works

The Deposit Plus (Series 2) Fund currently invests in a variable rate deposit account with AIB Bank (a trading name of Allied Irish Banks, plc). The interest rate earned on the deposit account is currently the ECB rate * (as at 10 March 2016) but the rate may change in the future.

Zurich Life’s normal product charges apply and includes annual management charges and, on some products, early encashment charges.

The return is before the deduction of charges, the pension levy and imputed distribution payments, as applicable. Taxes may apply when you mature your pension. Withdrawals from ARFs (Approved Retirement Funds) and AMRFs (Approved Minimum Retirement Funds) will be taxed as income.

* Clients do not have a deposit with AIB Bank (a trading name of Allied Irish Bank plc) or any recourse to AIB Bank. In the event that AIB Bank does not meet its obligations to Zurich Life, or the return on the AIB Bank account is otherwise insufficient, the value of the Deposit Plus (Series 2) Fund will be based on the value returned from the deposit account with AIB Bank. No other assets of Zurich Life Assurance plc shall be used to make up the difference.

Allied Irish Banks, p.l.c. is regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland.
