The Indexed Global Energy and Metals Fund (formerly Global Commodities Fund) is a unit-linked fund that gives you the opportunity to participate in the performance of energy and metal commodities, including oil, gas, industrial metals and precious metals. The fund currently invests in an Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) managed by BNP Paribas. The BNP Paribas ETF is passively managed and aims to track an index indirectly using derivative instruments, but may not always track it exactly. Zurich Life reserves the right to replace this ETF with another fund at any stage. This fund invests some of its assets outside the eurozone so a currency risk arises for a euro investor. The unit-linked fund can have exposure to cash as part of the management of the fund.
