The Sterling Investment Bond and the funds you invest in are provided by Zurich Assurance Ltd, trading as Sterling.
We work with a number of fund managers to provide our customers with a wide choice of investment opportunities. We aim to ensure the range of funds available meets the needs and expectations of our customers.
We regularly review the range of funds we make available to make sure we're offering a broad range of investments that offer appropriate value for money.
The role of a fund manager is to seek out the best investment opportunities in line with their fund's investment objectives.
Fund managers use their knowledge of the companies, markets and territories in which the fund can invest. They use this expertise to decide on where to invest, and when and how to adjust the relative proportions of different asset types.
The fund manager keeps these decisions under constant review, through continuing analysis, research and regular meetings with the companies in which the fund is making or considering investment.
