How it works

The Irish Government Bond 2016 Fund invests in the 2016 Irish Government Bond and all coupons paid on the bond are reinvested by Zurich Life in Irish Government Securities.

All investments held by the fund are guaranteed by the Irish Government.

The returns you achieve on the fund will depend on:

  1. The current price of the 2016 Irish Government Bond, and
  2. The return Zurich Life receives on the coupons we reinvest.

For every €100 of the bond held, the 2016 Irish Government Bond pays a coupon of €4.60 each year from 18th April 2011 until 18th April 2016. On 18th April 2016, the €100 is also repaid.

Zurich Life’s normal product charges apply, including early encashment charges on some products. The returns on the fund are before deduction of these charges.

What happens after 18th April 2016?

Zurich Life will write to you to offer you alternative investment options before 18th April 2016.
