For which investment forms do I need an investor profile?

You have a pension scheme through your employer, in which the contribution is invested. Your employer has determined which investment forms are available to you: HorizonBeleggen, ProfielBeleggen and VrijBeleggen. For ProfielBeleggen and VrijBeleggen, you need an investor profile.

This is how investing for your pension works.

HorizonBeleggen is our standard investment form. We take care of your investments for you. No investor profile is required for this investment form.


With ProfielBeleggen, Zwitserleven will invest for you. You decide how we do this by creating a personal investor profile. This shows what type of investor you are and how much risk you are willing to take.


With VrijBeleggen, you choose how you wish to invest and how much risk you wish to take. Your investor profile determines the appropriate degree of risk for you.

What is an investor profile?

An investor profile indicates the kind of investor you are. The investor profile is the result of questions about your personal financial situation, your knowledge of and experience with investing and the risk you wish to take with your investments. The result of the questionnaire determines which of the five investor profiles can be assigned to you: cautious, defensive, neutral, ambitious or offensive. It is a good idea to invest (or have your investments made) according to this investor profile, but you may also make a different choice.

Where can I find my investor profile and can I change it?

You must ensure that your investor profile matches your personal situation. It is thus sensible to check once a year whether your investor profile is still appropriate. Or sooner, if there are changes in your situation in the meantime. For example, if you get married, have children or if you and your partner split up. You set your investor profile at least once every five years (each time) in MijnZwitserleven. This is possible if you use the ProfielBeleggen or VrijBeleggen investment form. If you have previously completed the questionnaire and submitted your investor profile, you will see your current investor profile in MijnZwitserleven.

Financial risk
With your investments you finance a benefit that can be used on the retirement date for the pension benefits. The size of the pension benefits is not guaranteed. Thus you run a financial risk. The size of the investment premium of your employer and the returns on the investments both influence the size of the capital on your retirement date. This benefit and the rate for the purchase of a pension income on your retirement date determine the size of your pension income.
You receive information from us once a year about the risks of your investments for your pension. We check whether those risks correspond with the risk that you are willing to take.

Your pension contributions go towards sustainable investments.
