With the right portfolio strategy, investing doesn’t have to be tricky
UnitPlus offers you four professional portfolio strategies with different risk-return levels for little money. All portfolios have been put together by experts and are optimised for you so that you can get more out of your money.
Four hand-picked investment strategies for your comfort.
Investing in a profitable and sustainable portfolio at UnitPlus requires no prior knowledge and is suitable for beginners and advanced investors alike. All portfolios have been developed by experts and aim to ensure the best possible risk-return ratio.
The magic word is diversification.
With every UnitPlus portfolio, you invest in different asset classes and industries that are spread out over 800 companies worldwide. You’re not only invested in industrial countries like the USA and Germany, but also into emerging economies such as India and Brazil. Diversification allows you to minimize your risk and make use of the return potential of the stock market.
Your portfolio is always up to date
We keep a close eye on your portfolio so that you can sit back and relax. If your portfolio deviates too much from your initial weighting due to price movements, we automatically rebalance it. It’s that simple.
One-time amountYour desired amount is transferred to your UnitPlus account and invested. You can start with as little as 25€.
Saving planWith a saving plan, you invest the same amount every month. We find this very useful, because it helps you stay consistent with your investment. Furthermore, you make use of the “Dollar cost averaging” effect, allowing you to buy more shares when the stock prices drop and buy less when prices are high. You can also start at €25 here.
Personalized savings planIt works like a savings plan, but is smarter and tailored to you. You don’t invest the same amount every month, but a sum that fits your lifestyle and monthly financial situation. Our smart algorithm optimizes your investing strategy and helps you make the most of your money.
We value sustainability.
All ETFs in our UnitPlus portfolios fulfill specific
sustainability criteria. While selecting fitting ETFs for our
portfolios, we took environmental, social and governmental
criteria into consideration and compared over 200 ETFs with the
so-called ESG criteria.
Our portfolios are constructed in a way that stocks and bonds from companies and states that are not sustainable according to our criteria, are excluded from our investments.
By the way, it’s a widespread myth that sustainable investments must yield lower returns. Our portfolios are curated to not have a disadvantage compared to less sustainable investing opportunities.
In what assets do I invest with UnitPlus?
All four UnitPlus portfolios are made up of 7 different ETFs, so that your investment is broadly diversified worldwide and you can skim off potential returns all over the world. The portfolios are made up by 5 equity ETFs and 2 bond ETFs, so that you are not only invested in equities, but also in bonds. The portfolios are professionally managed, monitored and, if necessary, adjusted to new market conditions. When selecting the right ETFs, we placed particular emphasis on sustainability criteria and cost efficiency. You can find more information on the investment process in our Whitepaper.

How much return can I expect?
Investing involves risks and therefore a positive return is not guaranteed, even with UnitPlus. The good news: Over the long term, capital markets rise. On average, a broadly diversified equity portfolio has historically generated returns of around 8% per year. To ensure that your money is well diversified, the four UnitPlus portfolios invest globally in over 800 companies with recognised sustainability criteria. Part of the money is invested not only in equities but also in bonds to further improve the risk-return ratio. Based on historical data, UnitPlus portfolios have generated returns of between 4% and 8% per year. Of course, there have been years where it has been significantly more and other years where the return has been negative. If you want to know more about this, take a look at our return calculator on the website, which shows you the performance of various deposit plans based on historical data.
Do I also receive dividends with UnitPlus?
No, because we reinvest dividend distributions back in your portfolio. From a return perspective, this approach makes the most sense. The equity ETFs in your portfolio do this automatically, while the bond ETFs pay out the dividend but are then automatically reinvested by us. In this way, you benefit even more from the compound interest effect in the long term.
