Objective

NN Strategy Fiscal saving is a Branch 23 insurance policy that enables you to build up a supplementary pension before and during your pension in the fiscal long-term savings system. Perfect to be combined with pension savings. Possible tax benefit of 30%, depending on the personal situation. You save for a potentially high return in the longer term.
The aim of the NN Life Patrimonial Future Fund is to provide added value in the medium and long term on the amounts deposited into your policy, as a result of the investment opportunities on the financial markets. You benefit from the professional management of portfolios of securities and/or other liquid financial assets. The spread of the portfolios that constitute the funds is designed to limit the risks inherent to any investment, albeit without fully excluding them. As a result, NN Insurance Belgium nv is unable to guarantee any return and the financial risk of the investments will be borne by the policyholder.
More details are available in the Management Regulations and the NN Strategy fiscal Management Regulations and Financial information sheet.

Who is it for?

This policy is aimed at natural persons between 18 and 65 looking to invest their money in a Branch 23 fund.  This insurance policy is also intended for customers looking to enjoy a tax benefit in the context of long-term savings. Retail investors need to be aware that their policy will be paid out at the earliest on their 65th birthday if it has a minimum term of 10 years. It is only possible to take out the policy if the person's legal place of residence is in Belgium. Proof of residency can only be provided by presenting a Belgian identity card or resident's card.
There is no capital protection and the retail investor must be prepared to bear the risk.

Who is it not for?

NN Strategy tax savings is not subject to the regulations of the United States of America (USA) regarding the trading of securities, nor to the supervision of the US financial regulator, Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).  For this reason, transactions linked to investment funds (Branch 23 products and cover) are not suitable or intended for individuals who may be qualified as a "US Person" in the broad sense.

Customers who do not yet have a housing loan can usually not enjoy the tax benefit.

RISKS
  • With Branch 23, neither the capital nor the return is guaranteed. Your return is determined by the way the funds in your policy perform. So it depends on market fluctuations.
     
  • If you can or wish to invest in investment funds for a short period, there is a financial risk attached. That risk is borne in full by the policyholder.
    There is no entitlement to profit-sharing. Important: The insurance company offers neither a capital guarantee nor a guarantee on the return of the Branch 23 part.  As a result, the policyholder may receive back less than the initial investment. The financial risk linked to the Branch 23 policy is borne in full by the policyholder.

 

  • Solvency risk: life insurance policies constitute, for each individual manager, a special asset that is managed separately within the assets of the insurer. Should the insurer go bankrupt, this special asset is reserved as a priority for meeting commitments to policyholders and/or beneficiaries.
     
  • Market risk: this is the risk of loss that may be caused by the price fluctuations of financial instruments in a portfolio.
     
  • Liquidity risk: this is the risk of loss that occurs when unfavourable market conditions affect the ability to sell (illiquid) assets when necessary.
     
  • Rate risk: risk of loss as the result of changes to interest rates on the valuation of financial instruments in a portfolio.
     
  • Credit risk: the risk that a borrower does not pay back the loan (in full). This can have the effect of generating a loss on the value of the portfolio.
     
  • Exchange rate risk: the risk that can occur as the result of the effect that fluctuations in exchange rates have on the valuation of financial instruments in a portfolio.
     
  • Political risk: if the value of an investment falls on account of the instability of political changes in the country(ies) where the investment has been made.
     
  • Operational risk: the risk of direct or indirect loss as the result of inadequate or failing processes related to determining the net asset value of a portfolio.

Discuss your investor profile with your broker. This is essential for investing sensibly.
