Advantages of College Fund+
  • Guarantee on contributions

    If the value of the investments made into College Fund+ have lost their value, your child will still receive the accrued funds, less the contract fee. The guarantee no longer applies if you terminate the contract prematurely or make a partial withdrawal.
  • Life insurance

    Your child will have the money they need to start an independent life even in the event of your death. In such a case, the planned contributions are made by the insurance company.
  • Flexible contributions

    You can change or stop the payments and withdraw the money, if necessary. Contributions can also be made by other people, e.g. grandparents. You can view the sum accrued and amend the contract in the Internet bank.

College fund+ is suitable for you if you:

  • wish to make it easier for your child to start an independent life;
  • are planning on saving money for more than five years;
  • and are ready to invest
