The net asset value is the price that a share has at a certain time.  That is, the price at which it would be sold at that moment. This value is calculated daily on the price of the assets in which the fund invests. That is, it always reflects the real value of the participation on the date indicated.
 

The fees of an investment fund are discounted daily in the proportion corresponding to the net asset value of the fund. Therefore, when you check this net asset value, remember that it is net. 
 

The valuation date corresponds to the last net asset value that the adviser has sent us, usually 1 to 3 working days before the date of the consultation. There, the balance of the investment fund never reflects the valuation on the day that you make the consultation.

From opening the deposit to the end of the term you will always have the same interest rate. Only if you cancel your deposit, will we apply a lower interest rate, since less time has passed than was established.

Savings accounts allow you to save at your own pace, because they do not require a minimum or maximum balance. Your money also grows every month because your savings generate interest that you will receive in your current or payroll account each month. To have access to your money, simply make a transfer to your current account or payroll account.

 

An Open Current Account or Open Payroll Account  allows you to carry out your day-to day money management tasks easily and conveniently. You can pay bills by direct debit, have money available on your cards, receive interest from other products or open new ones, etc.

 

Just submit this signed application to your company or, if you prefer, let them know your account number directly.

There are three main groups of guarantee within car insurance: 
 

  • Those that affect people: 
    Mandatory and voluntary third party liability, legal defence, driver accidents and travel assistance. 

     
  • Those that affect the vehicle: 
    Broken windscreens, fire, theft, damage to own vehicle (collision, parking, etc.) and travel assistance. 

     
  • Complimentary ones: 
    Licence revocation, recovery of points and legal defence of fines.  

     

All these guarantees – except for Mandatory Third Party Liability – are optional. Insurers often market them in packages, in what are often called “car insurance types”.

Warrants are complex products and entail a high risk, so they are designed for investors with sufficient knowledge and experience to invest in this type of security. This kind of investment requires constant monitoring of positions.

When it comes to car insurance, a loss refers to a traffic accident


If you have a loss, you must notify it to your insurer a maximum of seven days after it takes place. 


If only material damage occurs, the solution usually involves a friendly settlement declaration that each of the parties involved presents to their insurance company. The insurer will send a loss adjuster to assess damages for repair. 


When personal injury occurs, the traffic authorities write a statement describing how the accident occurred. In these cases the loss can be settled by friendly means – if the insurance companies and the injured parties reach an agreement – or, if there is no such agreement, by judicial means to establish the liabilities and compensation 

Yes, especially if you need money. But take into account that, if you do this, the interest from the deposit will be lower than the rate you have contracted.

  • Whenever you make a purchase online in a store that is part of the Secure Electronic Commerce System, you will receive an SMS with a security code, on the mobile phone whose number you have provided.
     
  • You will be prompted for the security code at the end of the purchase process, in order to complete the transaction.
     
  • Once you put the code in and accept the transaction a charge will be made to the available balance of your credit card or on the account associated with your debit card.

Euribor is the index most commonly used as a reference (i.e. to calculate the revision of variable interest rates) in mortgage loans. It comes from the average of the rates applied to euro deposit operations by the 50 most active banks in the European interbank market.

The Euribor is published for several maturity dates, but the one that is used as the official reference index (interbank reference) is one-year Euribor. If you want to find the latest published value, you can check this on the Bank of Spain website.
 

The spread is the margin added to Euribor when you take out your mortgage (if it is Variable or Mixed) so that Euribor + spread = the interest rate for your mortgage

Warrants allow you, through a small investment, to win when the stock market rises (call) and when it falls (put), which multiplies the investment opportunities. With them, you can win when the market falls or hedge your portfolio, or increase your earnings thanks to the leverage effect they allow. Openbank not only allows you to operate with Warrants in an almost professional way and with the best tools, but you can also operate with any Warrant in the continuous market, from any issuer.

The net asset value is the price that a share has at a certain time.  That is, the price at which it would be sold at that moment. This value is calculated daily on the price of the assets in which the plan invests. That is, it always reflects the actual value of the share on the date indicated. This value is net, because the fees of the adviser and depositary are already discounted. 
 

The valuation date corresponds to the last net asset value that the adviser has sent us, usually 1 to 3 business days prior to the date of the consultation. Therefore, the balance of a Pension Plan never reflects the valuation of the day on which the consultation takes place.

You can deposit money in your pension plan through periodic scheduled transfers or whenever you decide. You can do it in different pension plans as long as you don’t exceed the established maximum legal limit. 
 

You can receive your money when any of the circumstances provided for by law is fulfilled and you are recognised as the beneficiary or participant. You should tell the plan adviser how you want to receive the benefit. You have four options to choose from: 
 

  • In the form of capital, that is by means of a lump sum. 
     

  • In the form of income, by means of temporary. or lifetime regular payments. 
     

  • In a mixed form: by means of a lump sum and the rest as regular payments.  
     

  • In the form of payments with no regular frequency. Although not considered capital, they are not considered as income either, so, for tax purposes, they count as capital receipts. 

You can, as long as you meet the minimum investment  required by the product. You only have to order the opening of the deposit and request the transfer of your funds at the same time. 

But remember that, if we receive the funds more than 45 days later and/or their value is more than 10% less than the minimum amount of investment required, you will not meet the requirements, so you will not be able to open the combined product. In this case, the interest rate that will be applied to the amount of the deposit will be nominal annual 0.5%.
