46% of South Africans between the age of 20 and 50 have no savings at all. So a good question to ask yourself is if you’ve saved enough for the important things in life, like your child’s education. And if so, how?
The secret to ‘adulting’ isn’t as hard as 20-year-old you might have thought - it’s as simple as putting your money in the right place, at the right time. Sanlam’s Tax-free and Cumulus Investment options will help you to grow your money so you can achieve the future you have always envisioned for yourself.
The Sanlam Cumulus Investment Plan is designed to give you the flexibility to choose how and where you want to invest your money over the long-term. What’s more, our team of financial experts will help your money go even further by allocating an additional percentage to each payment that you make.
Your financial planner will help you choose from a range of leading investment funds, with the potential to earn great returns on your investment and compound interest earned on growth. You can choose to make recurring payments on a monthly basis, or single once-off payments.
Fees may vary according to the product and underlying investment. It’s best to speak with your financial planner to ensure that you pay the correct fees and understand what you’re paying for, and why.
The minimum contribution for this specific plan is R1 000 per month or a R100 000 once-off payment. Current legislation states that returns on your investment will not be taxable in your hands.
We all have long-term goals, but getting your money to reach its full potential isn’t a walk in the park, especially when you can’t afford to put away too much every month. This is where you could really benefit from investing in a tax-free savings account (your 65-year old self will thank you for it).
Tax-free investments let you contribute a maximum R33 000 a year or a lifetime contribution limit of R500 000, without having to pay tax on interest, dividends or capital gains.
