How it works

The fund objective is to provide investors with the opportunity to link to the performance of the NASDAQ-100 index and share in the performance of some of the world's leading information technology companies. The fund currently achieves this by investing in the PowerShares QQQ fund.

This is an Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) managed by Invesco PowerShares. Zurich Life reserves the right to replace this ETF with another fund at any stage.

The NASDAQ-100 index represents the largest non-financial securities on the NASDAQ Stock Market with information technology companies making up the largest component of the index. As this fund invests outside the Eurozone, a currency risk arises for a euro investor.

The constituent stocks and their weights within the NASDAQ-100 Index are constantly changing.

Invesco PowerShares do not guarantee that the PowerShares QQQ Fund will always exactly mirror the index due to, amongst other things, the time lag and costs of reflecting changes in the index.

The fund is exposed to the movement of the US$ against the euro and as such a currency risk arises for a eurozone investor.
