If you transfer your investments to Finax to April 15th 2022, we will manage the value of the transferred investment at no fees for a year.

Why Should I Transfer Investments to Finax?

Note: All data related to the historical development of Finax portfolios are modeled and were created based on backtesting of the data. We described the method of historical performance modeling in the article: How do we model the historical development of Finax portfolios? Past performance is no guarantee of future returns, and your investment may also result in a loss. Inform yourself about the risks you are taking when investing.

The Way You Invest Matters

In the Finax model portfolio, you would have turned 10 thousand invested euros to 32,213 euros over 10 years. In equity mutual funds, your savings would reach a value of 22,941 euros over the same period.

The difference amounts to 9,272 euros. A fortune that makes it worthwhile to transfer an investment.

In the case of mutual funds, we average the actual after-tax net returns of the largest equity mutual funds with a 10-year history of six asset management companies offering services in Slovakia. The funds and their appreciation can be found in the table below.

You are not a Finax client, but you invest in mutual funds. The current value of your investments is 10,254 euros. You open a Finax account and terminate your investment in the mutual funds by returning the fund shares on 10.3.2022. The funds are transferred to your bank account on 15.3.2022. 

You deposit 15,000 euros into your Finax account. The funds are credited on 17.3.2022. You document the investment termination with a confirmation of the return and redemption of the fund shares and a detail of the payment of 10,254 euros received to your bank account, which you send by email to

Finax will apply a discount of €10,254 in your account, valid from 17.3.2022 to 16.3.2023, i.e., you will pay zero portfolio management fee from this amount during this period.

In this case, the portfolio management fee would be charged on the amount of €4746 (15000-10254), should the value of your account remain at €15,000 for the whole year.
