The private pension system, which has had constant development since its founding in 2003, accelerated its rise in 2013 thanks to the 25% state contribution. The private pension system is a system in which mutual funds are used to route the system participants' contributions to both local and international money and capital markets. Funds increase in value as invested assets increase in value or as new sources of income are added to the portfolio, such as dividends, interest, and rental income. By paying the system either monthly or all at once, participants can save money over the long run. The participants should modify the fund distribution, which necessitates that they are familiar with the markets, aware of the funds being given to them, and capable of using those funds as investment instruments.

This course has been designed to cover topics including what private pension system funds are, what types of assets may be invested with them, and how market fluctuations affect fund returns. Participants will learn how to use monies through Voluntary Participation as an investing tool. Participants will also discover comprehensive explanations of how private pension funds are organized, what factors are taken into account when managing them, what types of assets are invested in, and what factors should be taken into account when choosing funds.
