  • Your savings in DinKapital are subject to loss

    DinKapital provides security for your and other customers’ pension savings. DinKapital is part of Velliv’s basic capital as so-called ”subordinated capital”.

    This means that DinKapital must first cover any losses if both the collective bonus potential and Velliv's equity are lost. This has never happened in the company’s history of over 100 years.

Attractive low-risk investment

Five per cent of your contributions for savings under VækstPension, LinkPension or HøjrentePension can be invested in DinKapital which offers an attractive and stable return at a low risk. DinKapital is included in Velliv’s capital base and therefore constitutes security for your and our other customers' savings.

High security
Technically speaking, DinKapital is included in Velliv's capital base as 'subordinated capital'. This means that before DinKapital is to cover any loss, Velliv must have lost the entire collective bonus potential, which has never happened. Moreover, Velliv must have lost its entire equity, which has never happened in the company's more than 100-year history, and it has never happened to a Danish life insurance company.


For DinKapital, APR (Annual Percentage Rate) for the investment management costs is always 0%.

However, you will pay direct costs for the management of your pension scheme.

Your total APR depends on your savings and how your scheme is put together.

You can see your total costs stated as Annual Costs in DKK and Annual Percentage Rate (APR) in Netpension.
