Microinvestment with Growth Account

Microinvestment enables you to grow your investment portfolio without even noticing, investing up to 1 euro to your Growth Account with each debit card payment.

Did you know that microinvesting will help you to deposit approximately 1,1 euros to Growth Account on a daily basis, in a year it will grow up to 400 euros.

Microinvesting is targeted to customers who are ready to accept investment risk, value comfort and are determined to save money in the long-term. Microinvesting will help you to deposit approximately 1,1 euros to Growth Account on a daily basis, in a year it will grow up to 400 euros. If you invest this amount of money yearly throughout 25 years the value of your Growth Acccount will increase up to 40,000 euros provided the average annual growth rate is 10%.

This can be done by signing first the Investment Services Agreement, then setting up Growth Account Agreement via the internet bank. Finally, debit card has to used for payments in order to generate automatically microinvestments that are transferred to Growth Account.

Conclude the agreement

If you do not have a Growth Account yet, first conclude an Investment Services Agreement and Growth Account Agreement.

Pay with debit card

Please note! The microinvestment sum is not reserved automatically after each debit card payment. The card payments made during a 24-hour period are accumulated and on the next day the total sum will be calculated to be transferred to your Growth Account as a microinvestment.

If you do not have sufficient funds for the microinvestment at the time of the payment, then a) as much as possible will be taken from your account or b), if your account balance is zero, nothing is taken.

If you wish to stop making microinvestments, you can cancel the service in the internet bank.

Calculation of microinvestment

The sum of a debit card payment is rounded to the next integer.

Example. Your card payment is 2.1 euros. The next integer is 3 euros. The difference between the two numbers is 90 cents – that is the sum of the microinvestment.

Smaller payments

If you wish, you can set an upper limit to your microinvestments for smaller payments (up to 10 euros), which is 10% of the payment value.

Example. Your card payment is 2.1 euros. Usually your microinvestment sum would be 90 cents. By selecting 10% as the upper limit, the microinvestment sum is limited to 21 cents.
