The tips of Lamda experts

  • It is of central importance to choose the body that manages the training funds and to choose the route of investment in the fund, since over the years the differences between the funds can reach tens of percent.
  • It is recommended not to withdraw a training fund after 6 years, after about 6 years the fund continues to be liquid and tax-free including future profits!
  • The younger we are, it is recommended to choose investment paths with a higher risk level in order to maximize the savings in the long-term training fund.
  • You can get a loan on preferential terms against the funds of the training fund directly from the fund without the involvement of the bank.
  • If you have 2 education funds when one fund is liquid (six years have passed since the date of the first deposit into the fund) and the other is not liquid (six years have not passed since the date of the first deposit into the fund) you can withdraw the 2 funds according to the seniority mechanism.
  • The training fund should be looked at as an investment portfolio for everything, since it is our personal funds for savings which are invested in the capital market according to our choice only and without the employer’s conditions. Therefore, we recommend dispersing assets in a way that matches the needs of the client and the family unit.
