Investing “made easy” with S-Invest Plus

It’s been a while since Sophie and Marc bought aunt Elise’s beautiful house. Finally, the works are almost finished and they’re getting ready to move in. The costs of the renovation, the mortgage and the interest charges have made Sophie and Marc’s savings dwindle. With Marc’s parents having decided to sell their house in order to live in the South, they have given their children some money. This money, the young couple wants to invest in the family’s future.

How to invest in a different way?

Sophie and Marc are conscious of the choices they make in their lives. They are trying to make the right decisions in line with their views on sustainability and their ecological footprint.

Just as they decided to renovate their new house to improve its energy rating, they are looking for an ethical, sustainable investment offering returns that are potentially higher than a traditional savings account.

In their search for the perfect investment, Sophie contacted her Personal Banker at Spuerkeess and made an appointment to discuss the best plan.

First step: the risk profile

During their meeting, the Spuerkeess advisor explains the obligations imposed on the bank by the MIFID II* directive.

Sophie and Marc therefore take their Suitability Test, which classifies them in an investor profile corresponding to:

  • their investment goals and their risk tolerance;
  • their financial situation and their capacity to bear losses;
  • their knowledge and experience in relation to financial products and services;
  • their sustainability preferences.

In the same way, it analyses their risk profile (Security, Conservative, Balanced, Growth or Offensive) and their needs in terms of sustainable investments (Committed, Interested, Neutral on sustainability).

Second step: choosing an individual savings plan

Although Sophie and Marc are informed and interested customers, they are looking for a way to invest without too much hassle. Sophie received a lot of information when she attended the annual Stock Market Learning offered by Spuerkeess and she is also very aware of the risks and behaviour of financial instruments.

Wanting to invest EUR 50.000 as a base capital for their future, both opt for the S-Invest Plus product, a savings plan that offers them “tailor-made” options according to their risk profile and sustainability preferences, as well as flexibility in how their savings plan is composed.

Given the ongoing turmoil on the financial markets, their advisor suggests starting with an initial investment of EUR 20.000 and spreading the remaining EUR 30.000 at their own pace over the next few months or even years through a recurring order. This individual savings plan offers the advantage that
