How it works

The fund objective is to provide investors with exposure to the Australasian real estate sector. The fund currently achieves this by investing in the iShares Asia Property Yield UCITS ETF.

This is an Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) managed by BlackRock. Zurich Life reserves the right to replace this ETF with another fund at any stage.

The Index covers property companies and Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) that pay a higher percentage of their profits as income. This fund invests some of its assets outside the eurozone so a currency risk arises for a euro investor.

BlackRock does not guarantee that the iShares Asia Property Yield UCITS ETF will always exactly mirror the index due to, amongst other things, the time lag and costs of reflecting changes in the index.

BlackRock Asset Management Ireland Limited is authorised and regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland.
