European Mid Cap

The strategy invests principally in the securities of companies in Europe excluding the UK, seeking to generate long-term capital gain through active bottom-up stock-picking, with valuation the over-riding criterion for a stock’s inclusion in the portfolio. Since the strategy seeks capital gain as opposed to trying to beat a benchmark, the fund is free to deviate from index weightings.


Philosophy

Simon Rowe

This is still a stock-picker's market in the mid-cap space where the stock market performance of companies will depend on the quality of the business, the talents of the management team and the opportunities for development."

Simon Rowe, European Equity Fund Manager
