Increase the value of your savings

Take care of your savings

If you save and invest wisely you can attain attractive appreciation of your savings and improve your current standard of living. You can also protect your finances against negative effects of inflation.

Effects of inflation on your savings

Over the process of time inflation is a threat to the real value of your savings. When money and savings do not appreciate they can lose their value considerably, usually because of the effects and influence of inflation. For the money we have we can buy less and less from year to year and the living costs become more expensive. If you do not take that fact into account it can significantly reduce your current standard of living in the future.

This illustrative example shows the influence of 2% year-on-year inflation on €10,000 over time.

Saving

The advantage of our savings products is the possibility to invest and increase the value of your savings, even in small amounts, so you do not need to affect your current standard of living. With regular savings, you are gradually building financial independence and taking advantage of several benefits of regular saving such as, for example, compound interest and cost averaging1. The sooner you start saving, the more you can capitalize on the potential that saving has to increase the value of your finances.

Tatra banka has a wide range of solutions for you, from term deposit accounts to investment savings products that offer higher yield potential.

1 Cost averaging: means buying of shares of stock at various price levels. If the share price is dropping, you can buy more shares with your regular amount of savings. You benefit when the price comes back to its previous value. At the same time, if the price is too high, you will buy fewer shares. This method increases the overall effectiveness of your saving and its final outcome.

Plan your investments in terms of time

Plan the time periods for which you can invest your available finances. Spread your savings into several products to address short-term, mid-term and long-term investment targets. In making your decisions, also consider what comfortable level of risk you are willing to accept as the trade-off for the chance to gain higher yields.

Investing

To maintain your comfortable life in the future it is important not to spend all your money and instead put aside a portion of your income and invest advantageously. The money you put aside will help you when you might have no income or if you need to spend more than you are earning.

The sooner, the better

Start saving or investing as soon as possible and capitalize on the potential of saving and investing in the most effective way.

Start building your financial stability and independence gradually.

We have a few tips for you:

  • Put yourself first and set aside part of the money you have left after regular monthly expenses.

  • Have a short-term financial reserve to cover planned expenses in the near future, for instance, a vacation, a recurring insurance premium, annual settlement of housing costs, auto service checks and the like, but also for covering unexpected events such as temporary loss of employment and the like.

  • Save regularly, and as your financial situation improves increase the amount of saving accordingly.

  • Capitalize on several solutions, taking into account the possibility to earmark finances in order to be as effective as possible. Split your finances into long-term, mid-term and short-term goals and consider the most advantageous options to increase their value. If you allocate your finances correctly and find yourself in financial need you should not need to touch your long-term resources and withdraw them prematurely, something that could be disadvantageous; rather you can let these resources further increase in value. You will be able to cover your need for finances from, for instance, short-term resources.

  • Benefit from time. With even a smaller, regular amount of savings that have the benefit of a longer time you can accomplish more than if you start saving later, even with a higher amount.

Start building your financial stability and independence gradually.This model example shows the advantages of a longer savings period. The graph shows a comparison of deposited and saved amounts of €25, €50 or €100 along with various time periods. The long-term appreciation is considered at 5% p. a.

Financial reserve

It is essential for your financial stability to create a sufficient cash reserve for financing your planned or unexpected expenses for a period of approximately six months to one year.

A sufficient financial reserve, representing at least three monthly incomes, gives you higher comfort, better protection against unexpected events and makes it easier for you to decide on longer, but more effective, appreciation of your savings with the aim to maintain or improve your current standard of living.

Financial health principles  

  • surplus of income over expenses as the basic precondition for creating savings (long-term reserves)

  • a financial reserve that can sufficiently cover your expenses in case of loss of income

  • credit stability – a corresponding amount of loans and instalments in line with your assets and regular income

  • insurance of risks to secure your family and property in times of unexpected crisis situations

  • regular savings for retirement to create a sufficient source of income in the future

You can create your financial reserve in several ways.

  1. If you already have sufficient cash funds, deposit them to the Savings system of your Tatra PersonalTB current account or open a term deposit.
  2. If you need to create your financial reserve, open a SavingTB
