European Large Cap

The strategy aims to provide long-term capital growth by investing in European company shares.

The European Large Cap Equity Team has a proven track record in managing European equities. The team has been structured to enable quick decision-making, ensuring accountability for each member and the fair treatment of all clients. The investment process combines top-down sector theme allocations with rigorous bottom-up stock selection.
