What solution can you choose to make your life goal real?

A preservation plan is a single payment investment designed to protect and grow your built-up retirement savings when you leave a company’s pension or provident fund. It is specially designed to preserve your savings until you reach retirement. You will continue to enjoy the tax benefits of a retirement fund and the law allows you to make one withdrawal before you turn 55.

Our preservation fund solutions
  • Pension Preservation Fund
  • Pension Preservation Fund (GEPF)
  • Provident Preservation Fund
Five good reasons to invest in our preservation plans
  1. You can choose one of five risk-profiled investment portfolios depending on your appetite for risk and the term of your investment.
  2. You can switch between some of the investment funds when your needs or circumstances change.
  3. You have one opportunity to withdraw all or part of your retirement savings before you retire. The amount depends on the rules of the fund. You cannot withdraw more than once from your retirement savings, even if you move to a different preservation fund.
  4. A preservation fund can also be used to safeguard your part of retirement savings from a divorce settlement.
  5. At the end of your term, you do not have to retire from the preservation fund. You can leave your retirement savings invested in the preservation fund for as long as you wish until you need it.
What retirement savings can you invest in a preservation plan?

Retirement savings from a pension fund can only be invested in a pension preservation fund.

Retirement savings from a provident fund can be invested in a pension preservation fund or a provident preservation fund or a single payment retirement annuity.
