Zurich-Fund-Today

We often talk about the benefits of our structure and our business model - which marries third party capital with our capital markets business and balance sheet - because we believe that we have built something different. We have a capital markets business that provides a full range of services, from taking companies public to underwriting new deals (for both Zurich Fund and third party companies) and to syndicating debt and equity. And we have long-dated capital in our funds, ready to deploy across a wide variety of asset classes. Individually, these funds and businesses are generating returns for our fund investors and stockholders, but when they are paired, they create a powerful competitive advantage. We see our balance sheet as a key differentiator, giving us the ability to align our interest with our fund investors, develop new investment strategies and support existing ones, and enter into strategic transactions on our own behalf.

When you partner with Zurich Fund, you benefit from the breadth and expertise of the entire firm. When appropriate, all of Zurich Fund’s businesses work together on behalf of all of the investors in our funds. Zurich Fund’s investment partners have access to decades of financial and operational experience, broad regional and industry expertise, insight into global macro and geopolitical trends, and a powerful network of global relationships – both inside and outside of the firm.

Through an integrated approach across our firm, we seek to provide innovative financial solutions and investment vehicles to help our fund investors achieve their investment goals. With offices around the world, we fulfill our mission one investor at a time, one company at a time—and we do this as one global firm.
