Zurich adds 40 new funds to range

Zurich International Life is adding 40 new funds to its mirror and international wealth account platforms.

The firm is aiming to increase its global investment presence and will introduce Schroder, JP Morgan and Henderson funds.

The funds will be available from November and will focus on emerging markets, property, European funds and bonds.

Zurich International Life chief executive Martin Davis says: “Our overall aim in constructing fund ranges is to enable financial professionals to build well-diversified and well correlated portfolios, aligned to their clients needs. We believe that the addition of 40 new fund links, in total, across the mirror and IWA fund ranges fulfils this.

“These latest fund additions allow us to build on our proven track record of providing broad choices across fixed income and equities sectors. We have always been keen to create greater access to the emerging Europe, property and bond sectors and are convinced that acting on intermediary feedback will provide a sturdy base for further expansion of our fund range”.
