The Active Fixed Income Fund is an actively managed bond fund. It primarily invests in bonds issued by eurozone governments and bond-based financial instruments. It may also invest in supranational bonds and other investment grade corporate and non-sovereign bonds. The investment parameters allow for up to 30% of the fund to be invested overseas with the core invested in eurozone bonds. This fund invests some of its assets outside the eurozone so a currency risk arises for a euro investor. As the fund is managed from the point of view of a euro investor any currency hedging that may be conducted will be into euros. This fund is managed by Zurich Life.
