Are you prepared for anything? - With savings or reserves

Why and how much money should one set aside as a reserve or for emergencies?

During times of crisis or emergencies, it’s wise to have a certain financial reserve available. In addition to monthly planned expenses like rent, utilities, etc., unexpected events can cause a shift in financial planning. Suddenly, the washing machine breaks, and the car also needs to go to the shop.

For such cases, the consumer advice center recommends having two to three net salaries set aside to ensure a stable safety net

Questions we hear on the phone almost daily

How does Ginmon TopZins work?

In a savings account, money market account, or term deposit, you deposit your money with a bank. In essence, the bank borrows your money to use.

For this, banks often pay little to no interest.

On the other hand, Ginmon TopZins invests your money in the money market. Money market funds are considered liquid and value-stable financial instruments, much like bank deposits (daily funds, other sight deposits, savings accounts) and cash. With money market funds, you can directly benefit from attractive interest rates - without going through a bank.

Is there a specified duration for which the balance must be invested?

No, there is no specified duration. Your investment is designed to be maximally flexible, and a withdrawal request can be made daily.

Is my balance securely invested and how is it protected?

Your money is invested in an ETF and is protected regardless of the investment amount. According to German law, ETF investments are treated as separate special assets, ensuring that your investment remains your protected property in the event of insolvency of the fund company, the custodian bank, or the asset manager. Additionally, in Germany, ETFs are subject to state approval and supervision, making them one of the safest forms of investment available.

Is the interest rate fixed?

We guarantee the interest rate until the time of a withdrawal. The only exception is if there is an adjustment to the Euro Short-Term Rate (€STR) by the European Central Bank prior to a withdrawal date. In that case, we will review whether an adjustment might be necessary.

When will I receive my interest?

Interest earnings are calculated daily and automatically reinvested. Therefore, the expected interest return is already included in the investment's performance. The value of your investment thus changes on a daily basis. As soon as a withdrawal is made, the interest return is realized.
