My voluntary contributions

No matter what you’re planning and for when, you can fund your savings at your own pace. You decide

  • how much (the amount)
  • where (into what investment vehicle – FCPE)
  • how (with what payment method)
  • and what’s more, you can also choose when (how frequently) you want to pay in:
    • Occasionally, by payment card, direct debit, or cheque

    • Regularly: schedule your contributions as often as you want (monthly, quarterly, twice-yearly) and your bank account will automatically be debited.

The biggest tree started as a tiny sprout. Lao Tzu

Farah Bouzida explains why regularly scheduled contributions are a great tool for building your savings.
