How it works

The fund, which will be well diversified, will seek to invest in high calibre equities. It will seek to avoid companies where the dividend payments are deemed to be unsustainable. This fund seeks to provide superior growth through capital gains and income, using equities and equity-based financial instruments (for tactical reasons, the fund may also invest in cash). For tactical reasons the fund may also invest in cash or cash equivalents.

Dividends received by the fund are reinvested in the fund.

This fund invests some of its assets outside the eurozone so a currency risk arises for a euro investor. As the fund is managed from the point of view of a euro investor any currency hedging that may be conducted will be into euros.

This fund is managed by Zurich Life.
