Participation certificates With a participation certificate, you can directly benefit from the development of the underlying instrument. Participation certificates are comparable to index certificates, they differ by their underlying. While index certificates have an equity index as underlying, the underlying of a participation certificate can be something else like an equity basket or a commodity (e.g. gold).
Passive Portfolio Management It is based on an effective behaviour of capital markets. The aim is to achieve a rate of return, which exactly replicates the set benchmark.
Payment of Yields The payment is made up by the yields achieved within a given period. In funds with yield payment, the yields are paid mostly once a year. The yields are gathered in the fund’s assets up to the date of payment and thus increase the share value during the year. By making the payment, the value of the share is reduced on the payment date by the amount paid.
