How to Set Up Monthly Deposits to The Money Pouch

You can set up monthly deposits into your investment account with The Money Pouch.

This is very useful if you work in contract or commission work, for example you work in the energy industry on contract or you work in sales on commission or in IT on part time or contract work.

Most large insurance companies try to sell savers products which tied them into 15, 20 or 25 year contracts. Unfortunately, if you stop paying into these contracts, there can be consequences and if you cash in the policies you can lose 10% or more of your investment.

These types of retirement policies were set up in an age where people entered a career and had a job for life. This is rarely the case in the modern work force. On average people move jobs every few years and even change countries. You need a flexible plan that doesn't penalise you if you lose your job, change job or change location. The Money Pouch can provide a low cost solution for the modern worker.

The Big Insurance Companies' Solution - The Old Solution

  • Locked into contracts as long as 25 years
  • Exit penalties of 10% or more if you pull out before the end of the contract
  • If you miss a monthly payment, you need to make those monthly payments in future, so if you are out of work for a year, you will owe 12 months' extra premiums
  • High fees, you must pay the insurance companies fees, plus each fund fees, plus custodian fees, this can make fees as high as 4% per year
  • Some flexibility to increase/decrease payments, but there are many rules
  • Rules concerning top up amounts
  • Large choice of funds, but fees are high
  • Normally, the funds are never rebalanced or perhaps once per year, but normally you need to prompt your financial adviser
