You would take out a Vista to turn today’s excess income into a cash amount in the future
The world of saving and investing actually comes down to achieving three really simple goals – and the plan you put in place depends on which of these goals you are looking to achieve. If you are looking to take any extra income you have today, money that you don’t need for day to day expenses and put it aside to grow, you could invest it in a plan that allows for regular savings such as Vista. Once the cash amount is built up through sticking to your regular savings it is then used at some point in the future, for example to supplement retirement or pay school fees. Zurich savings plans like Vista and Target Saver can help you turn today’s income into tomorrow’s cash lump sum
Stay committed, get rewarded
The amount you save each month is called the ‘premium’ and how long you save for is called the ‘term’. You choose the savings amount and how long you want to save for. The minimum savings amount is USD300 a month and the minimum term is five years.
Vista is designed to help you reach your financial goals through disciplined savings. This means continuing to save until you reach the end of your savings term.
Vista has been structured based on your selected savings term, think of it like other term based financial commitments such as paying a mortgage.

In case of emergencies, you can withdraw money from the plan. The amount available will depend on how long you have had the plan and how much you have saved. Since this is a discipline-based savings plan, it is important to keep in mind that saving as planned will help you achieve your future goal.
