The Best Select Fund EUR Index 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 basket of 8 diversified Mutual Funds, selected according to their diversified allocations and active management, with the aim of generating stable returns in a wide range of market scenarios. 


The possible Index universe is : 

Old Mutual - Global Equity Absolute Return Fund

CPR - Croissance Reactive

DWS - Multi Opportunities 

Fidelity Funds - European High Yield Fund

Pimco - Global Bond Fund

Sextant- Grand Large

DNCA - Eurose

M&G - Optimal Income Fund


The index is reviewed and rebalanced on a quarterly basis using a momentum algorithm. The 5 best performing Basket Component are selected according to their performance over the elapsed quarter and given weights ranging from 30% (for the best performing) to 10% (the 5 th top performing component).

A volatility target mechanism is applied to maintain the volatility level of the index close to 4%, in order to reduce significant price fluctuations and provide investors with protection against spikes in volatility

Exposure to the basket of Underlying Funds is calculated as the ratio between the target volatility of 4% and its realized volatility, calculated over the last 50 business days with a maximum exposure of 150% and a minimum of 0%.
