Introduction to our new funds, which will be available from the 15th of March 2021.

Feeling comfortable with your Investments at all times is just as important as your return. 

Ideally, you want an investment approach that is aimed at removing your worries about your investments. That’s why at KBC, we go for investments that are within your comfort zone, i.e. Comfort Zone Investing (CoZI). By staying within your comfort zone, you will feel less compelled to take decisions you might regret later.
 

ExpertEase Funds

Shares offer the best prospect for long-term returns, but share prices can be unpredictable. One tweet, an unexpected election result or a natural disaster can have an impact on financial markets. Even a short-term drop in share value can feel personal to an investor. 

We’ve developed a new suite of funds which will react to take account if this happens. These new funds will have the ability to react and adapt to changes in the economic environment by moving assets to less risky options when markets fall or to increase return potential by increasing share holdings when markets are performing. So you always retain growth potential but within your investment comfort zone.
 

Sivek Fund
We have developed a Sivek Fund specifically for the Irish Market. Similar to the ExpertEase Fund, the Sivek Fund is also a Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) Fund. Learn more about our SRIs.
