relative return of 23.03% compared to the broad Eurozone cap-weighted
index.
* Over the long term, all diversified multi-strategy indices exhibit a
positive relative return compared to cap-weighted indices. Performance for
multistrategy smart beta indices exposed to risk factors known to be well
rewarded over long periods remains strong with annual excess performance
over broad cap-weighted indices ranging from 1.36% to 2.86% since inception

Volatility index post the lowest relative return (-1.54% and -1.53%,
respectively). However, over the latest one year period, the High
