Commenting on the product, Arminjon said the nascent European recovery offered an attractive backdrop for investors, but remained complex and volatile as evidenced by the sovereign crises of the past few years.

"This strategy can take steps to adapt to these circumstances with a view to protect capital, offering the potential for a lower risk option to access European stock markets," he said.
