  • Join ABLV Active Investment Plan

    In terms of management, pension plan is similar to mutual funds, which have been offered by ABLV Asset Management, IPAS during ten years so far.
    • As the company has achieved all strategic targets set in previous years, we decided to use our experience and wide opportunities for managing the capital of the 2nd pension pillar. Since the number of participants of the 2nd pension pillar is growing, pension savings are ‘long’ and ‘calm’ money.

      I have been working in investment business since 1998, whereas since 2000 I have been dealing exactly with management of the clients’ funds. Some of the first mutual funds established by us — ABLV Emerging Markets USD Bond Fund and

    • ABLV Emerging Markets EUR Bond Fund — have been under my management for ten years already. Visible return and trust demonstrated by our clients even in difficult times speak for themselves.

      You are welcome to join ABLV Active Investment Plan, which combines our experience, low fee, and flexible investment structure — the optimum mix for growing your pension capital and improving the well-being after retirement!
