Notes to answerer
Asker: Thanks. I had thought of this myself but I wanted to be sure. I've just now found this in a glossary from Statens tjänstepensionsverk at http://www.spv.se/Ordlista/: "Traditionell livförsäkring I en traditionell livförsäkring är det försäkringsgivaren som bestämmer hur dina pengar placeras. I en traditionell livförsäkring är du garanterad en viss avkastning. (In English: Traditional insurance)"

While I had trouble understanding the Swe abbreviation here, the hint that it means 'traditionell' in Swe seems valid. So this may be a sideways 'agree'.

Without commenting on the Swe usage of the word, there is nothing 'traditional' about such accounts in any Eng usage. The Swe usage of 'traditionell' is often (as in this context) used to mean 'common', 'standard', 'typical'. The Eng usage of 'tradition', rarely has anything to do with the practical aspects of banking, finance, and investing, though you see it used regularly in Swe.

Ringing the bell at the NYSE to close the day's trading is a tradition. But account designations are more specifically defined (and varied) than that.

See what Mr. Webster has to say about this, below.
