The index that investors participate 1:1 with this bond is the Solactive ERSTE Future Invest Index VC. It invests in 10 exchange-traded investment funds (ETFs), which passively invest in recognized financial market indices and reflect them efficiently. An additional risk control controls the degree of investment of the ETF portfolio and a money market investment. The ETF portfolio consists of 7 megatrend equity funds and 3 bond funds on sustainable corporate and emerging market bonds.
In calm market phases, the index invests mainly in the ETF portfolio. In uncertain and turbulent times, it may be advisable to make the investment more defensive and increase the money market share. Therefore, the index automatically reduces the degree of investment in the ETF portfolio as its volatility rises above 7 %. As a result, the money market share will increase and the ETF portfolio will be proportionately reduced, which can reduce the risk. The extent of the automatic switching to the money market depends on the volatility. When the market calms down, the degree of investment is increased again accordingly.
