Zukunftsorientiert sparen mit dem s Fonds Plan.

s Fonds Plan. As flexible as life itself.

With the s Fonds Plan, you can get closer to your long-term wishes even with small amounts. The s Fonds Plan combines the concept of gradual asset accumulation with the earnings potential of securities. And this is possible starting at only 50 euro with a fund of your choice. 

What is the s Fonds Plan?

With the s Fonds Plan, you invest regularly – about once a month – in an investment fund of your choice. You automatically invest a fixed amount and use it to buy fund units at the current issue price.

Lower price thanks to the cost-averaging principle

If you regularly pay in equal amounts, you can achieve a more favorable average price than with a one-time purchase. The “cost-average principle” is particularly useful when prices fluctuate strongly, as you purchase more units when prices are low than when prices are high.

More income through compound interest

Your earnings are automatically reinvested in accumulating funds and can start working for you immediately.

Automatic value adjustment

If you wish, your deposits are automatically increased annually by a fixed percentage or euro amount. This way you can compensate for inflation.

Note: Selling units when prices are low can lead to losses. 

Advantages for the investors

  • Choose up to 5 suitable funds from our range of funds
  • You can change or stop your deposits at any time
  • Mixed rate due to the cost-average effect 

Risks to be considered

  • Fund prices are subject to fluctuations – depending on the securities included
  • The payout depends on market developments – capital losses are possible
  • Funds may contain various risks such as foreign currency risks, market risks, issuer risks and sector risks. 

5 Steps to the s Fonds Plan

1

Identify investment needs
Think about why you want to build up capital. After all, the investment need determines the amount of the deposit. You can invest from 50 euro per month. 

2

Define the investment goal
Consider in advance when an investment is satisfying for you personally. Remain realistic. For the level of return also depends on your willingness to take risks and the time span. 

3

Choose the right time span
With the s Fonds Plan, units are purchased on an ongoing basis. The more units you have, the more you benefit from the fund’s returns. 

4

Select investment funds
Now it’s a matter of choosing the right investment funds. Your risk tolerance and expectations about the level of return play an important role in the decision. The deposit can also be divided among up to 5 investment funds. 

5

Open online or get advice at the bank
You can open the s Fonds Plan conveniently online or let our advisors present you various investment options.

Why save with securities? – Low Interest Rate Policy

Is it still worth saving? What growth in value can I expect in the long term? The main concern of savers is that inflation will exceed interest rates on traditional forms of savings, and that they will end up saving for a loss instead of an increase in value. Our chart illustrates how your deposits will develop over time depending on your strategy, what final amount can be expected at the respective interest rate, and what appreciation you can expect after the term, adjusted for inflation.
