Would you like to learn more about investment funds?
How does an investment fund work?
It consists in having a group of investors pooling money that the management entity uses to buy assets, such as stocks or bonds. That is what is known as the fund's assets. When you invest in a fund, you're actually buying a part of those assets that we call a unit.
What is the net asset value?
It is the price that a participation or stake has at a given time. That is, the price at which it would be sold at that moment. This amount is calculated daily on the price of the assets in which the fund is invested, discounting management and deposit fees. That is, it always reflects the real value of the participation on the date indicated.
What returns can you expect?
Investment funds can achieve very attractive returns, although you should keep in mind that past returns do not guarantee future returns, since there is no fixed interest rate. However, it is always helpful to see how the funds have behaved in the past: historical return.
Are there any regulations that affect your investments?
Yes, the MIFID Directive. It is a community regulation that protects customers and improves the functioning of financial markets. It establishes a classification of customers and products in order to offer you the investment that suits you.
What tax advantages do you have?
You can transfer your investment from one fund to another without affecting your income tax return. So you will be able to change your investment without generating losses or profits. You will only have to pay taxes to the Treasury when you sell your shares. Until then, even if you accumulate profits you will not have to pay income tax on them.
That is a big advantage over accounts and deposits, since the profitability of your funds is included in the value of the investment, so that capital is also making a profit until you decide to recover it. The rate at which capital gains are taxed depends on their amount, regardless of the period in which you have maintained the investment:
19% for earnings below €6,000.
21% for earnings from €6,000 to €50,000.
23% for earnings in excess of €50,000.
What documentation will you receive before you contract a fund?
Before opening a investment fund, we will put the DFI (document with the Fundamental Data for the Investor) or information brochure at your disposal, a semi-annual report and, in the case of international funds, the Marketing Report. In them, you will find all the information you need.
How can you transfer funds?
A transfer consists of withdrawing the money from one fund and immediately contributing it to another. It may be total or partial, as well as between Openbank’s investment funds or those of other entities. Of course, in order to do so the ownership and the percentage of equity must be the same. This flexibility allows you to move your investments more easily according to your interests.
When can you have your money?
You can do it whenever you need it. The liquidity of investment funds is a big advantage over term deposits (in which you have to wait for maturity to receive the principal and interest agreed). Only in the case of guaranteed funds do you have to wait for a specific deadline.
