The Best Select Fund 2 EUR index is a systematic index that aims to provide the performance of a dynamic multi-asset basket of mutual funds with a volatility control mechanism.


The Index is composed of a hypothetical basket of funds where the weightings are systematically determined on a quarterly basis using a Momentum algorithm: the 5 best performing basket components (out of 8 components) are selected according to their performance over the elapsed quarter and given weights ranging from 30% (for the best performing component) to 10% (the 5th top performing component).

The index also includes a volatility control mechanism of 4.5%, where the hypothetical exposure of the Index to the 5 best performing mutual funds varies on a daily basis.
