So, if you want to get some return on your savings by opening a savings portfolio at inbestMe, read on and see how.

What is a savings portfolio?

A savings portfolio is a financial product that allows you to obtain a return measured through the IRR, Internal Rate of Return, for the money you deposit in it, without giving up the freedom to dispose of your savings. This feature makes it a great alternative to other bank accounts in which you also have your money available, but the return you get is small or zero. However, bear in mind that the money you will receive will depend on the amount you keep in it, so the more savings you deposit, the higher the interest you will receive.

Moreover, in the specific case of the inbestMe savings portfolio, you should know that your money is totally safe, since the platform is backed by FOGAIN (Investment Guarantee Fund in Spain) and supervised by the CNMV (National Securities Market Commission).

Why choose to open a savings portfolio?

Opening a savings portfolio is always a good idea, as it allows you to obtain a risk-free return on your savings. However, at this time, with interest rates at historically high levels, it is an even better idea, since the assets in which you invest, mainly monetary, benefit from them. Although these are not the only advantages, as they also stand out:

  • Flexibility: No minimums or maximums, that is, you can put in any amount of money you want, from 1,000 euros to one million (in the case of inbestMe), and get a remuneration.
  • Liquidity: you can withdraw the money whenever you want or need it and in a week you will have it available for use.
  • Taxation: By not paying dividends, there is a tax deferral, i.e. you do not have to pay taxes on the latent profits.

First, before opening a savings portfolio at inbestMe, you should know some important details about it. One of them is that you can open two different savings portfolios: in euros and in dollars.

  • Euro savings portfolio: currently offers a Yield of 3.5%. This is a portfolio made up of the best monetary funds denominated in euros, which means that the IRR offered is linked to the interbank rates of the European Central Bank. As a particularity, you can invest in it from 1,000 euros, while the rest of the features such as liquidity or taxation is the same.
  • Dollar savings portfolio: currently offers a Yield of 5%. In this case, the assets that make up the savings portfolio are subject to the interbank rates of the United States Federal Reserve (FED). In addition, in this case, the minimum investment is 5,000 euros or dollars.

Another particularity to take into account has to do with the Yield, since it is not a fixed return, but it is variable and is updated according to different parameters in addition to interest rates. InbestMe has designed a portfolio to reduce volatility, optimize performance and get the most for your money, but it may change in the future if the ECB or the FED change interest rates.
