How it works

The aim of this fund is to offer investors competitive returns through participation in a managed portfolio of higher dividend-yielding global 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).

Dividends received by the fund are reinvested in the fund.

In terms of currency, the fund is managed from the point of view of a eurozone investor. As this fund invests some of its assets outside the eurozone, a currency risk arises for a euro investor.

This fund is managed by Zurich Life.
