Zurich International Life (ZIL) says the popularity of 130/30 funds prompted it to add three of the market leaders to its investment platform.
The Invesco Pan-European 130/30 Equity, the DWS Investments Emerging Markets Equities 130/30 and the Top 50 Asia 130/30 funds are among 38 products ZIL has added to its proposition, which also include a number of currency funds.
Zurich says the addition of the funds reflect a growing interest in alternative investments and offer a new opportunity for investors to diversify their portfolios in the middle of the credit crunch.
Paul Quirk, chief executive officer at ZIL, 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.”
