Healthcare Impact Fund

The Zurich Investments ACI Healthcare Impact Fund provides access to a portfolio of healthcare companies listed on global markets, with the potential for long-term capital growth, while also supporting positive social impact. The healthcare investment universe has an unprecedented level of innovation, which the manager believes may lead to opportunities for significant value creation. In addition, as these companies attain their fundamental objectives they also have potential to create a meaningful impact on society.

How the fund works

The Zurich Investments ACI Healthcare Impact Fund invests in healthcare securities with high growth potential that are primarily listed on international stock exchanges. The Fund will be fully unhedged at all times, providing investors with exposure to foreign exchange fluctuations as well as underlying share price movements.

The Fund aims to:

  • provide investors with long-term capital growth by investing in innovative healthcare companies from around the world.
  • outperform the MSCI Health Care (Net Dividends Reinvested) Accumulation Index in $A over periods of five or more years.

Environmental, Social and Ethical considerations

In addition, all companies in the portfolio undergo analysis on how their fundamental improvement aligns with a positive impact on society. Each company is reviewed against four portfolio impact themes that fully align with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 3 (SDG-3): Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages. These four portfolio impact themes include:

  • New or innovative treatments for diseases including cancer,
  • Enhancing the productivity of medical equipment, services and software,
  • Access to medicine and health care services, and
  • New solutions for lowering health care costs.
