Should I start saving through insurance?

You make a living, though you would feel safer if you could increase your savings for the coming years. You manage your financial matters, though monitoring investments or share trading are not at the centre of your life. Saving through insurance may be exactly the right solution for you.


It is a form of investment in which you can be very active, completely passive, or alternate between these. You can grasp opportunities offered by a specific point of time, change funds or add new funds, or just let your savings develop on their own. When saving through insurance, you can change funds without tax consequences. If you are an OP cooperative bank owner-customer, your savings generate OP bonuses for you.

 

Multiple benefits of saving through insurance

Intended for long-term saving and investment, saving through insurance is an easy and flexible way to invest that conveniently adapts to different life situations. 

You can select several investment vehicles from our wide range to your contract. Investment vehicles provided by the insurance company include mutual funds, investment baskets and bonds. Tax will not be levied on income from the insurance when switching investment vehicles but it will generate additional income during the entire saving period. If your plans change, you can withdraw funds before the end of the insurance period. You can monitor the value performance of your investments and easily switch investment vehicles on the op.fi. service and OP-mobile.
