How it works

This Global Equity Fund is a unit linked fund that gives you the opportunity to participate in the performance of global companies. To achieve this, it invests in the MFS Meridian Global Equity Fund.

The fund's country and sector exposures are driven by bottom-up stock selection, not top-down allocation. The fund may use derivatives for hedging and/or investment purposes.

As the fund invests some assets outside the eurozone, a currency risk arises for a euro investor.
