How do I benefit if I transfer my existing pillar 3a to frankly?

Attractive costs:

Thanks to frankly’s all-in fee, it is half the price of comparable securities savings solutions.

The all-in fee on accounts and securities balances is currently only 0.45%. The more users save together, the cheaper it will become, thanks to the community discount.


Different investment strategies:

You can open up to five pillar 3a accounts in the frankly app and choose completely different investment strategies for each pillar.


Easy to open and manage:

With the frankly app, you can manage your pension plan with ease, the digital way. No bank visits and no paperwork.

frankly note:

Depending on the provider, it may take several weeks to complete the order. When you transfer, please note that your securities will be sold and then reinvested. This means that, for a few days, you won’t have any investments. If you have index funds, you will also be required to pay issuing and redemption fees to the funds. However, the transaction fee will be waived in full if you transfer your account. Your client advisor will be happy to answer any questions you may have.


Incidentally, 3a assets are always fully dissolved and transferred to the new provider because, for legal reasons, pillar 3a cannot be split.
