Group insurance for your employees' building projects

Since 1/4/2016, the variable interest rate charged on advances has decreased from 2.75% to 2.35%. This offers additional opportunities for employees of yours with housing projects they wish to carry out.

Whether to build, buy or renovate, AG Insurance has several customized solutions for your employees.

In fact, besides advances, reinstatement (endowment mortgage) loans, pledge loans and using group life insurance as an alternative to outstanding balance insurance are attractive packages for your younger employees, whose pension plan reserves are still limited in size.

Advance

The principle is simple: through his group insurance, the employee saves up a supplementary pension capital that will be paid out to him on retirement.
The advance (1) allows him to use the already constituted savings in order to:

  • finance the purchase, construction, improvement, repair or conversion of a property
    that is located in the European Economic Area and producing taxable income.
  • repay a mortgage loan previously granted and intended for any one of the above purposes.

Reinstatement (endowment mortgage) loan

Your employee takes out a mortgage loan from a financial institution and pays only the interest.

The mortgage capital is repaid at the end of the contract via the pension capital built up at that time through the group insurance.

The group insurance is linked to the mortgage loan and is used to reinstate the capital borrowed.

Pledge loan

The group insurance is pledged to the financial institution that extends credit to your employee, and serves to guarantee the repayment of the credit.

The pledge is an interesting option because the financial institution has an additional warranty.
In this way your employee enjoys an increased borrowing capacity where the value of the property is insufficient to secure the loan.

Finally, the pledge can be a valuable tool for negotiating a more favourable rate. While it does not generate any tax benefit, this solution is free of charges.

An alternative to outstanding balance insurance

When the death benefit of a group insurance contract is used as an alternative solution to outstanding balance insurance, this amount will be paid to the bank in the event of death in order to reimburse the outstanding mortgage debt.
  
(1) The employer must expressly provide in the group insurance regulations for the possibility of advances on benefits.

BNP Paribas Group, first quarter 2020 results

Excellent business drive in the quarter impacted by an unprecedented health crisis

The health crisis has had major repercussions on macroeconomic outlook and produced extreme shocks on the financial markets. After a quarter in line with the 2020 objectives of BNP Paribas, health crisis related developments had several major negative impacts on the first quarter 2020.

Commenting on these results, Chief Executive Officer Jean-Laurent Bonnafé stated:
“In response to the health crisis, the Group’s teams have mobilised around the world to contribute to the functioning of the economy and its financing. Our concerns have been to protect our employees who are fully mobilised to ensure banking services, to quickly implement solutions to support the financing of our corporate, institutional and individual clients, and to launch in all regions where we are present a plan for emergency donations to the hospital sector and organisations committed to assist vulnerable people.
At the end of a quarter supported by an excellent business drive, in line with its 2020 objectives, the results of BNP Paribas for the 1st quarter 2020 were impacted by the harshness of the health crisis. The good resilience of revenues and results despite this shock demonstrates the robustness of the Group’s diversified and integrated model. With all teams at BNP Paribas, whose I want to thank tireless commitment to serving customers and providing support to society, we will continue our efforts to mitigate the impact of the crisis on the economy and prepare for the future.”

BNP Paribas Group, second quarter 2019 results

The business of BNP Paribas was up this quarter in a context where economic growth remained positive in Europe but slowed down, implying expectations of a continued low interest rate environment.

Director and Chief Executive Officer of BNP Paribas, Jean-Laurent Bonnafé:
BNP Paribas delivered in the first half an increase in net income at 4.4 billion euros. Revenues were up thanks to business growth in the operating divisions. Operating expenses were well contained and benefitted from the transformation plan, generating a positive jaws effect. The common equity Tier 1 ratio rose to 11.9%, illustrating the Group’s solid balance sheet. New digital experiences rolled out for customers are a success and the Group is actively executing its ambitious policy of engagement in society. I would like to thank all the employees of the Group for their dedicated efforts to achieve these good results.
