The basics

Planning your financial future can be as straightforward as you want it to be. But first, there are a few things you should think about.

Set your financial goals

Are you buying a home? Building up a college fund for your kids? Planning for a well-earned retirement?

Work out your timeline

To get the best from your money, you should invest over the medium to long term (typically five years or more).

Decide if you want to save or invest

Investing has the potential of a higher return than saving over the medium to long-term.

Talk with your Financial Broker to find the option that suits you

Investing always involves risk. The value of your investment may go down as well as up and you may lose some or all of the money you invest, particularly when you invest in higher risk funds. You should never take more risk than your comfortable with. Your Financial Broker will help you figure out your attitude to risk and the right fund options for you. You can also use our Risk Profiler to see what kind of investor you are.

Grow your money with Aviva

At Aviva, our savings and investment options put your money to work, to give you the potential of a higher return on your hard earned cash. We offer two simple, flexible savings and investments products - Regular Saver and Investment Bond.

Regular Saver

Saving is about putting money aside for the future. With our Regular Saver you can save from as little as €100 per month.

Here's the criteria you'll need to meet;

  • Aged between 18 and 85
  • Able to save at least €100 per month
  • Looking for a medium to long-term savings plan of five years or more
  • Happy with the choice of funds into which you can invest your savings and happy to take some risk with the aim of generating returns
  • Prepared to risk getting back less than you put in
  • Happy with the charges on this product

Investment Bond

Investing is about trying to grow your money over the medium to long term. The returns can be higher than with savings products, but it's riskier than saving and you could lose money.

Here's the criteria you'll need to meet;

  • Aged between 18 and 85
  • Have a lump sum to invest and are comfortable to invest for five years or more
  • Want to invest in a product with a range of investment fund options
  • Are prepared to risk getting back less than you put in for potentially higher returns
  • Are prepared for the value of your investment to change over time.

What type of investor are you?

Before investing you need to decide how comfortable you are with risk, and the level of risk you're willing take with your money. Our risk profiler can help you figure that out. And we always recommend you speak with your Financial Broker before you make any decisions.

Use our Risk Profiler to answer some simple questions that help identify your attitude to risk.

What is a fund?

In a fund, your money is pooled with that of other investors. The fund can then invest in anything from company shares to government bonds, property or a mixture of different assets or strategies.

A fund manager oversees the fund and makes decisions about which assets it should hold, in what quantities, and when they should be bought and sold.
