Fund Profile

Category: Open Ended Investment Company

The investment seeks to track the performance of a benchmark index. The fund employs an indexing investment approach designed to track the performance of the MSCI US Investable Market Index (IMI)/Utilities 25/50, an index made up of stocks of large, mid-size, and small U.S. companies within the utilities sector, as classified under the Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS). The Advisor attempts to replicate the target index by seeking to invest all, or substantially all, of its assets in the stocks that make up the index, in order to hold each stock in approximately the same proportion as its weighting in the index. The fund is non-diversified.

Performance

Historical returns are no guarantee for future performances. Investing in Financial markets and securities involves risk. Past performance is not a guarantee of future results. Investment losses may occur and investors could lose some or all of their investment in the Fund.
Entry fees, purchase charges, custody fees, exit fees, sale charges and taxes are not included in the calculation of past performance. Ongoing charges (including management fees, administrative fees and other costs) have been taken in to account, as they are already included in the price/NAV of the fund.
The performance in euro can be lower or higher than the performance in the currency of denomination of the fund due to fluctuations in exchange rates.
