With a Zurich Savings Plus plan, your savings are invested in a range of investment funds depending on your attitude to risk. This plan will suit you if you want to save regularly for at least five years and want the potential to earn a good return on your savings. You have the flexibility of being able to access your savings if you need to, with options available that give you access to your money without any penalties.
Why invest your savings?
For short term saving goals, like saving for a holiday, a bank deposit account may be your best option. For longer term goals, like education costs, investing could be a good choice. Investing in a fund can give you the opportunity to earn an inflation beating return over the medium to long term. We can help you create a personal savings plan to suit you perfectly.
Your attitude to risk
With Zurich, your savings will be invested with a view to growing your money. How that money is invested depends on how much investment risk you are prepared to accept. Everyone’s attitude to risk is different. Choosing your own savings strategy will involve deciding on the level of return you are looking for and balancing it against the level of risk you are comfortable with.
How should I expect my investments to perform?
Some people put their savings into a regular savings or deposit account with their local bank or credit union. However, over the last decade we’ve seen record low interest rates, which have led to generally lower returns for money on deposit. But when you invest your money in a savings fund, that little extra on top can become a lot extra.
