The financial markets are becoming more complex and difficult to understand. This makes funds an attractive and versatile investment option.

The ideal combination of opportunities and security

The purpose of a fund is to invest money made available by private individuals, companies or pension schemes. The fund manager systematically invests the aggregated assets in equities, bonds, money market paper, real estate, and alternative investments – or in a combination of the various asset classes – in strict accordance with your selected fund strategy. You can choose from a wide range of different funds in various sectors, regions or countries, and in various currencies. In legal terms, investment funds are regarded as a special asset which is not included in the bankrupt estate should the issuer become insolvent.
