Transparent participation model

The Vita Classic retirement provision model is characterized by a balanced participation in the investment income, which benefits you and your employees directly in the form of interest. This causes the retirement savings capital to grow at an above-average rate, which leads to higher retirement assets. The amount of the interest benefit depends on the time of affiliation with the Vita Joint Foundation. So this income benefits customers who have contributed towards the positive development with their pension assets.

Interest earned on retirement savings capital

The total interest earned under the Vita Classic pension planning model consists of base interest and any additional interest. Thanks to the high investment income in past years, customers of the Vita Joint Foundation have benefited from total interest earned that is higher than average.
