What suits you best?







Investing for a fixed pension

  • For a fixed pension we reduce the risk of investing in small steps from age 57.
  • In this way we ensure you have greater certainty about the level of your pension benefit.

Investing for a variable pension

  • For a variable pension we do not reduce the risk of investing any further from age 59. This means you are taking more risk with your pension than with a fixed pension.

Your pension may grow if things go well. But you also run the risk of the investments generating less and both your pension capital and your pension benefit ending up lower.







When do you make your choice?


  1. Ten years before your retirement date, that is on your 57th birthday, you make a provisional choice:

    - If you choose to invest for a fixed pension, we take less risk with your investments from that point on.
    - If you choose to invest for a variable pension, we carry on taking a greater risk with your investments.
    - You can change your choice every month.

  2. On your retirement date you make a definitive choice for a fixed or variable pension benefit.









Need help with your choice?

One person is happy to take more of a risk than another. The following questions may help you decide:


  1. Do I want to run a greater investment risk in return for the expectation of a higher pension?
  2. Can I still get by if I receive less or far less pension?
  3. Will I still sleep well at night if the proceeds of the investments are temporarily or permanently worse than expected?

If you have answered ‘yes’ three times, investing for a variable pension may be something for you. But if you have answered ‘no’ three times, investing for a fixed pension may be a better option.
