Our Fund Partners
When your money goes into a fund, it is invested by a fund manager in the hope that it will grow over time. We believe that talented, experienced, and well resourced fund managers are able to improve investment returns over the long-term.
At Zurich Life, we offer you funds from a wide range of global fund managers, including our own investment team, making sure you have a world-class range of funds to choose from.
At Zurich Life, we believe that the macro economic environment is the key driver for investment market themes. We are business cycle investors, and our portfolios are constructed to take advantage of investment opportunities over all parts of the economic cycle.
Our investment managers closely co-operate to make decisions across assets, markets and sectors, taking a 'top-down' approach to identify trends and to bring the best investment opportunities to our clients.
It's widely accepted that long-term investment returns within an investor's portfolio are driven by asset allocation. Asset allocation decisions have become increasing complex over the years, due to a changing economic landscape and market volatility. At Zurich Life, we have a reputation for making the right investment decisions at the right time.
