Foursight Savings Plans
In today’s low interest rate environment, if you want to make the most of your savings you may need to consider options other than the banks and building societies. Over the long-term, the returns on deposit accounts are unlikely to match the returns you may enjoy from investing in the funds available through the Foursight range of Savings Plans.
The Foursight Savings Plans offer a simple and straightforward way for you to enjoy, through a broad range of investments, the potential for returns which may be superior to those available from banks and building society accounts. Of course, the returns you will receive from your Foursight Savings Plan depend upon the performance of the various funds in which you invest your contributions.

Cornmarket’s Foursight Savings Plans are four unique Savings Plans specially designed for Public Sector employees.
Foursight Educational Savings Plan
For a lot of families the cost of educating their children is now a cost second only to their mortgage. Cornmarket has developed a unique solution specifically designed to help you estimate the total cost of your children's education and what this means monthly to you right now. This tailored Savings Plan for your son/daughter will cater for their specific education needs in the future.
Foursight Retirement Savings Plan
The alternative long-term Savings Plan. Saving for your retirement is a long-term goal. Most Public Sector employees use a vehicle such as an AVC, PRSA or NSP Scheme, in conjunction with the Superannuation Scheme, to fund for their retirement but there can be times when a long-term Savings Plan is more appropriate.
The Foursight Retirement Savings Plan offers a simple and straightforward way for you to enjoy, through a broad range of investments, the potential for returns which may be superior to those available from banks and building society accounts.
Foursight Savings Plan
Have you got a long-term saving goal? If you're looking to commit your money for the longer-term to build up a nest-egg for the future, perhaps to start your own business, or build up a deposit for a house, then the Foursight Savings Plan is right for you. This Plan will make your savings work for you – growing as much as possible over the years ahead.
The Foursight Savings Plan is a unique Savings Plan designed to provide you with the peace of mind of knowing that you are building up a nice savings pot, that you can call on if you ever need to. And it's simple to set up.
Foursight Salary Protection Cashback Plan
If you are a member of your unions Salary Protection Scheme you know that it is all about protecting your financial security should you suffer long-term illness or disability. Your regular contributions to the Scheme are used to help ensure an income for those of your colleagues who are unfortunate enough to lose their salary through illness or injury.
Many members would like a return of their contributions when their membership of the Scheme ends (usually at age 60 depending on the Scheme's ceasing age), particularly if they have been fortunate enough never to have needed to claim from the Scheme. This is not possible under the terms of the Salary Protection Scheme. By saving through the Foursight Salary Protection Cashback Plan, a Savings Plan separate and distinct from the Salary Protection Scheme, members can now target a lump sum which, dependent on future investment conditions, may be equivalent to a return of their Salary Protection Scheme contributions.
