Traditional Asset Management
Traditional management is the choice for you if you want a secure placing where you will get guaranteed interest and a bonus when the managed fund generates a surplus.
The bonus is not guaranteed and may vary over time.
YOUR PENSION PAY-OUT
About 4 months before you turn 65, we will send you a letter about your pension pay-out. It is only then you need to decide when you want to start receiving your pension. If you want to start pension pay-outs before turning 65, you have to contact us.
The pension is normally paid out over 5 years, between ages 65 and 70. The earliest start is the month after you turn 55, and the latest is the month you turn 70. Pensions are taxed as income.
The size of your pension varies depending on when you start drawing it, and the pay-out period you choose. Paid-out pensions are taxed as income.

Your pension is based on paid-in premiums and guaranteed interest, which at present is 0.7 % before deductions for fees and taxes. Any return over and above the guaranteed interest is in the form of a bonus and is not guaranteed.
