How it works
The fund objective is to provide investors with exposure to Indian equities. The fund currently achieves this by investing in the Lyxor UCITS ETF MSCI India.
This is an Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) managed by Lyxor. Zurich Life reserves the right to replace this ETF with another fund at any stage.
Lyxor aims to replicate the performance of the MSCI Index indirectly using derivative instruments. As the MSCI India Index is priced in rupees, a currency risk arises for a euro investor. This unit-linked fund is denominated in euro.
Lyxor does not guarantee that the ETF will always mirror the index due to, amongst other things, the time lag and costs of reflecting changes in the index.
Lyxor Asset Management is authorized and regulated by the Autorité des marchés financiers (AMF).
