Zurich International Life boosts fund range

Zurich International Life has added 38 more funds, including 130/30 and currency funds, to its investment platform.

The three 130/30 funds include the Invesco Pan-European 130/30 equity fund and DWS Investments’ emerging markets equities 130/30 and top 50 Asia 130/30 funds.

Zurich says the currency funds, which come from Morgan Stanley, allow investors to allocate currency as an alternative asset class.

Zurich International Life chief executive Paul Quirk says: “The popularity of 130/30 funds shows no sign of diminishing as investors seek new sources of returns from alternative investments.

“With the addition of these new funds, we can offer today’s investor access to a wider universe of funds from leading global investment houses which allow them to build well diversified portfolios to suit their risk profile.”
