25 years ago feels like another era, the time of the collapse of communism and the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Pension clients of a certain vintage may find it hard to believe that was back in November 1989, that Zurich Life (formerly known as Eagle Star Life & Pensions)  launched the Balanced, Performance and Dynamic Managed Funds – the multi-asset funds of their era.

Through booms and busts, highs and lows, these three funds have continued to deliver for our ocean.ie clients. In fact, since its launch on 1 November 1989, the Balanced Fund has delivered a cumulative return of 1233%* compared to the sector average of only 773%*!

And with the fund beating the sector average in 19 out of 25 years* it is evident that the in-house investment team have the right formula.

This graphs below provide a good snapshot of their multi-asset expertise;
