Your advantages

Innovative technologies and cost-effective investments for optimal pension provision in vested benefits.

More flexibility

Thanks to the segmentation (no splitting, only 1 vested benefit relationship is created) of your vested benefit assets into mandatory and extra-mandatory, you can define a different strategy for each segment if required. This allows you to invest your vested benefits assets even more flexibly.

Broad selection

From an interest-bearing VB account to a vested benefits portfolio with a pure equity strategy (only available in the extra-mandatory segment) – VIAC offers the right strategy for every risk type. If required, you can adjust your investment strategy on a weekly basis.

More efficiency

Wherever possible, we use institutional fund tranches. This means that you often benefit from TER 0% funds, which are also exempt from withholding tax in some countries.

Unrivaled low cost

The administration fee covers all brokerage fees for the purchase and sale of the funds as well as custody account management. Foundation administration and management are also included.

When do I need a vested benefits account?

In certain cases, you must park your pension fund assets in a vested benefits account.

Vested benefits cash or securities account?

The most important thing first: Upon taking up a new job, you must transfer your vested benefits assets into the new pension fund. A vested benefits account is thus usually the best choice for short-term parking of money.

Unless you have to transfer your pension fund assets back into a pension fund, vested benefits serve the same purpose as pension funds. The investment horizon is therefore very long, making it suitable for investing in securities. This is also because vested benefits can only be withdrawn early in a few exceptional cases regulated by law.

Yet not everyone is equally relaxed about fluctuations in pension assets. VIAC therefore offers a wide range of options: from classic vested benefits cash accounts to strategies with almost 100% equities (only selectable in the extra-mandatory segment). We offer the right strategy for every need. You can also define a different strategy for your mandatory and extra-mandatory segments and thus, for example, choose a lower risk level for the mandatory segment.
