MarketStage - Transition


The MarketStage strategy adjusts the risk profile based on market movements and years to retirement.

Money is invested in the FNB Growth Portfolio up until 7 years prior to retirement.

Members' fund credits are then allocated between the FNB Growth Portfolio to a more moderate/conservative portfolio (the Ashburton Stable Income Fund) 7 years prior to retirement, taking into account market circumstances as well as the member's time to retirement.

This MarketStage asset allocation between the Growth and Stable Income portfolios is reviewed regularly to maximise growth and minimise volatility and risk.

Funeral cover


The Funeral Benefit pays a lump-sum benefit in the unfortunate event of the death of your employee, to their nominated beneficiary.

The pay-out can help to cover the immediate costs such as funeral and burial expenses.

The funeral benefit is a fixed rand amount per insured person, as selected by you, the employer, and pays out within 24 hours of receiving all required documents.

Depending on how you structure this benefit, your employee's spouse and up to 5 children may also be covered

Life cover


The Life Cover Benefit pays out a lump-sum amount to the employee's beneficiary *, if the employee passes away.

The pay-out can help with providing financial support to dependants, settling outstanding debts, and to pay for children's education or settle estate duties.

The lump-sum amount is set by you, the employer, and expressed as a multiple of basic (or risk) salary, for example:

If an employee has an annual risk salary of R250 000 and you selected the life cover multiple as 2x annual risk salary, the employee's beneficiary will receive a lump-sum pay-out of R500 000.

* How you set up this benefit, determines if it pays out (as a lump sum or an annuity via a trust) to nominated beneficiaries directly, or to dependants / beneficiaries as per the Pension Funds Act.

Disability cover


We are able to offer your employees cover if they become permanently disabled and are unable to work. We offer two options of cover: a lump-sum pay-out or a monthly benefit if they suffer a disability.

The pay-out can help replace an employee's income, cover additional expenses, such as recuperation costs, pay off debt or pay for modifications to their home and car to accommodate for the disability or to cover monthly expenses, such as school fees, rent or home loan repayments.

Disability cover - protection against the cost of permanent disability

The Disability Benefit pays out a lump-sum amount to the employee if they become physically or (or mentally) impaired and if they are unable to earn an income due to permanent disability.

The lump-sum amount is set by you, the employer and expressed as a multiple of basic (or risk) salary. This may not exceed the life cover amount. For example:

If the employee has an annual risk salary of R250 000 and disability cover multiple is selected at 1.5x annual risk salary, the employee will receive a lump-sum pay-out of R375 000.

Income protection - protects your employees' livelihood

Income Protection pays a monthly benefit to the employee if they suffer a loss of income due to a disability, or if they become severely impaired. This benefit will be paid until the employee is no longer disabled or returns to work.

The monthly insured amount is set by you, the employer and expressed as a percentage of basic (or risk) salary. For example:

If the employee has an annual risk salary of R250 000 and the monthly disability income is selected at 75% of annual risk salary, the monthly disability income will be R15 625.

Critical illness cover


The Critical Illness Benefit pays out a lump-sum amount to your employee if they suffer from one of the specified illnesses or conditions.

The pay-out can help to cover additional expenses, such as recuperation costs, nursing or medical specialists, settling outstanding medical bills, and for 24/7 care.

The lump-sum amount is set by you, the employer and expressed as a multiple of basic (or risk) salary. For example:

If the employee has an annual risk salary of R250 000 and the critical illness cover multiple is selected at 1.0x annual risk salary, the employee will receive a lump-sum pay-out of R250 000.

Investment Strategy


The Funds' primary aim is to protect and grow contributions to best enable members to meet their needs in retirement. The Funds offer a wide variety of investment portfolios, designed to meet the diverse needs of participating employers and their employees.

The Funds have a Trustee-choice Default Portfolio ('the default') and they also offer members investment choice, depending on the option selected by the employer. If the employer selected the Bundled Option, members can only be invested in the default, however if members are in the Flexible Option, they will have additional investments to choose from.

 

MarketStage


 

At FNB, we have developed a new MarketStage pre-retirement default option which is an investment strategy that considers not only a member's remaining term to retirement but also the prevailing market conditions and environment.

The model employed for this method is a trading strategy that allows the investor to maintain exposure to market upside even in the final years leading up to retirement, but also tries to limit the impact of market downturns. The risk parameters set in the model will determine the profile of the investment into the final years until retirement.

This approach ensures that the member has the highest chance of maximising their capital value at retirement date. The intent is therefore to provide the member with the highest capital value with which to purchase the appropriate solution in retirement - be it a living annuity, guaranteed annuity or a combination of both.
