Your pension plan at Flow Traders

Flow Traders contributes an amount of one month gross salary with a maximum of € 5.000. This contribution is spread over twelve months and will be automatically transferred to your Bright pension account.

The registration fee of € 50 will be deducted from your salary. You are free to decide if you want to participate in this plan.

What if I don’t want to participate?

If you choose not to participate in this plan, Flow Traders will contribute two-third of your monthly gross salary with a maximum of € 5.000. This amount is spread over twelve months and will be added to your monthly gross salary. Keep in mind that this option means that you do not grow your pension via Flow Traders.

What happens to your pension account if you leave Flow Traders?

If you terminate your employment at Flow Traders you can pause your pension plan at Bright. Cost free. The yearly fee will also be paused.

You can also choose to continue your pension at Bright. Please contact our customer happiness team by sending an email to info@brightpensioen.nl.

This tool gives you an indication of the capital you can accumulate and the corresponding monthly payout amounts. Calculated with the contribution, period and yield you can enter and alter yourself. The yearly membership fee is not taken into account in the contribution or in the results, since these are charges separately. And usually paid by your employer. The shown amounts are merely an indication and this indication is not an advice in any form. The actual results are dependent of various factors and circumstances. The value of your investments can fluctuate. Past performance is no guide to future performance. Here you find the calculations explained (Dutch).

What are the advantages?

  • Your personal pension account

    • Tax-friendly
    • You decide how much you contribute and how often
    • The accumulated money goes to your legal beneficiaries in case you pass away
    • Your money is invested at cost price
    • Socially responsible and sustainable investments
    • Additional investment account at no extra costs
    • A contribution break is possible
  • Transparent costs

    We do not take a percentage of your precious pension. We earn our money through a fixed membership.

    And we invest at cost price.

    This way you keep more.

  • Smart and sustainable investing

    We invest in a broadly diversified and sustainable manner.

    Because you naturally do not want to invest money intended to secure your future in things that could endanger your future.

  • Social enterprise

    We offer a solution to a social challenge. Namely, that a growing group of Dutch people are not building up a pension anymore.

    Like other enterprises, we want to earn money. And we need to make a profit.

    But that is a means to achieve our mission.

Don’t miss out on your tax benefit

Put money aside for your pension!

And you will be rewarded with tax benefit.

You get part of your contribution back from the Tax Authority and do not pay wealth tax on your pension account.

(Once your pension is paid out, you will only then start paying income tax again. This deferred tax is generally a lot less.)

There is a maximum amount you can contribute. This maximum is determined by your annual tax allowance (jaarruimte) and tax allowance over the past 10 years (reserveringsruimte.)

The annual tax allowance (jaarruimte) is the amount you are allowed to contribute each year with a tax advantage. The tax allowance over the past 10 years (reserveringsruimte) is the unused annual allowance of the past 10 years. Curious how much you can contribute? And what your tax benefit is? (Hint: it can be up to 49.5%) Calculate it below with our annual allowance calculator.

Calculate your yearly allowance and reserve margin

Saving for retirement is tax-beneficial. Therefore there is a maximum on what you can contribute per year. Your annual allowance (in Dutch: jaarruimte) is based on your income of the previous year. You can ask your financial or tax advisor to calculate this. Or do it yourself with our tool.

Indication tax return
Based on max. allowance

These amounts are indications. The actual results dependent of your income of the previous years and whether or not you had any pension provisions in these years. In the payout phase you will have to pay income tax. For the indicated tax return we have calculated with a percentage of 36,97% and for incomes of € 75.518 and more with a percentage van 49,50%. This can be different from person to person.
