With the Zwitserleven Duurzaam Index Aandelenfonds Noord-Amerika you can invest in a sustainable and responsible well diversified portfolio of listed North-American equities with a return close to the index and at relatively low costs.
What does the fund invest in?
The fund invests in shares of companies that are part of the MSCI North America Index Net EUR, with the exception of shares of companies that do not meet the sustainable investment objectives.
What is the investment objective?
The investment objective of the fund is to approach the return of the MSCI North America Index Net EUR as much as possible, taking into account the exclusion criteria. In addition, the fund pursues long-term sustainability objectives. You can read about these objectives in chapter 4 of the prospectus Zwitserleven Institutionele Beleggingsfondsen at the bottom of this page.
How does the fund invest?
The fund invests passively. This means that the fund manager does not select the investments himself and follows an index in order to keep the fund costs as low as possible. Of course, all investments meet the sustainability criteria. You can read about these criteria in chapter 4 and 11.8 of the prospectus Zwitserleven Institutionele Beleggingsfondsen. Applying the sustainability criteria results in a deviation (tracking error) compared to the index. The cash that becomes available due to the exclusion of companies is invested such that the tracking error is minimized.
