Start accumulating now to receive higher income in old age

Swedbank pension is your first step towards a bigger pension. The earlier you start, the more you will accumulate. Why should you choose us for pension accumulation?

  • Almost 40 per cent of all Lithuanians who accumulate pension in the pillar II pension funds have chosen Swedbank.
  • Since 2004 Swedbank pension funds generated over EUR 500 million for the customers.
  • In order to ensure a stable and profitable return for you, we invest in sustainable business.
Start accumulating

Swedbank pension provides a possibility to accumulate additional funds in pillar II pension funds and later receive the retirement income from two sources: Sodra and your pension fund.

Accumulation is simple because you will choose the suitable fund according to your birth year and will be able to accumulate in it until your pensionable age.

A contribution to your personal pension fund account will be comprised of two parts: a contribution calculated from your salary (gross) and an incentive contribution from the state budget calculated from the average national wages.

Calculation of these contributions and transfer thereof to pension funds is administered by Sodra, thus you don’t have to worry about it.

  • The Sodra old-age pension will not decrease because of the accumulation in pillar II pension funds.
  • Your accumulated funds are inheritable (until they are paid out).
  • By accumulating in pension funds, you assume the investment risk and there are no guarantees that the value of investment will grow. The results achieved in the past do not guarantee future results.
  • More detailed information is available in the Rules of the Pension Fund and the Investment Strategy Document.
  • Swedbank pension funds invest following the responsible investment policy.
  • Pension funds‘ assets are kept in a depository „Swedbank“, AB (Konstitucijos pr. 20A, Vilnius, Lietuva).

The amount of a contribution to your pension fund depends on your chosen accumulation model – minimum or maximum accumulation.

If you opt for maximum accumulation, your contribution to the pension fund will include:

  • A 3% contribution calculated from your salary (gross);
  • A 1.5% incentive contribution from the state budget calculated from the gross average national wages*.

For those who accumulate at a minimum rate, the contribution rates will gradually increase by 2023 until they reach the maximum contribution.

You can opt for maximum accumulation and increase your contribution to pillar II pensions funds already now on the Internet Bank or upon registration and arrival at a Swedbank branch of your choice.

* An incentive contribution from the state budget is calculated from the gross monthly national wages according to the official data of the Statistics Lithuania on the average wages of the year before last.

No worries

Having chosen a fund according to your birth year once, you will be able to accumulate in it until your pensionable age.

It is easy to start

You can start accumulating in pillar II pension funds or switch to Swedbank from another pension accumulation company without leaving home.

Life-cycle pension funds are balanced target group pension funds where investments are dynamically changed according to your age. The younger you are, the bigger share is invested in equity markets in order to get a bigger return on investment. As you are approaching the pensionable age, the share of equity in the fund (and the risk) gradually decreases, whereas the share of bonds and other more secure investment instruments (deposits, cash) increases in order to secure accumulated funds.

What is sustainability in pension accumulation? First of all, it is a conscious choice to invest in businesses and companies that operate sustainably. The sustainability assessment of enterprises includes the following criteria:

Society

  • Social factors include assessing the impact of a company on society: how it takes care of the safety of its employees and their working conditions, observes basic human rights requirements and maintains relationships with customers.

Environment

  • While assessing environmental criteria the impact of business activities on air, water or soil pollution, also, impact on ecosystems and human health is taken into account.

Management

  • Management assessment is related to management practices applied in the company, employee remuneration policies, gender diversity in management or how transparency provisions are implemented.

By choosing to accumulate in Swedbank’s pension funds, you contribute to the promotion and growth of sustainable businesses. The funds invested have a positive impact on the environment, human health and contribute to other United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Investing in a sustainable business is also likely to have a higher return on investment.

  • Higher expected return on investment. Based on our estimates*, the decision to redirect even more pension funds to sustainable businesses earned an additional EUR 24 million return on investment for customers in 2020. Enterprises that focus more on sustainability gain a full competitive advantage, i.e. their goods and services are more favoured by consumers, and it becomes easier for such enterprises to attract new investments.
  • Your positive impact on reducing climate change and air pollution. We have calculated that the CO2 emissions of the companies that make up the investment portfolio of our funds have decreased four times** as we have invested the assets of these funds in companies that meet the sustainability criteria.

* Comparative analysis was based on the data of Swedbank and Bloomberg. The additional amount earned was estimated by calculating the difference between Swedbank’s tier II pension fund return in euros and the theoretical return ratio. The latter was obtained by multiplying the value of our investments by the weighted return earned by the equity funds that invest based on the traditional criteria.

** From 205 tons of CO2 per million USD of revenue down to 52 tons of CO2 per million USD of revenue.

  1. Investment opportunities: By optimizing the composition of our fund portfolios, we include sustainability risks in investment decisions. For example, we choose to invest in financial instruments that meet the sustainability criteria, contribute to climate change mitigation and help achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
  2. Participation in operations: We cooperate with companies where we directly manage larger holdings, where sustainability risks are particularly high or where there are opportunities to set higher sustainability goals. Such participation includes, for example, voting at shareholders' meetings and continuous cooperation with the Board or the Management of the Company.
  3. We do not invest in certain areas, such as tobacco, alcohol, fossil fuels, weapon industries, companies that create content for adults.
Let’s take a sustainable step – for the benefit of all
Documents and information which are publicated based on the requirements of Regulation (EU) 2019/2088 Of The European Parliament and of The Council on sustainability‐related disclosures in the financial services sector, can be found here.
