Fund strategy

Investment objective

This equity fund aims to provide strong returns over a market cycle with considerably less business risk than the European equity market.

Key features

The fund invests in European-domiciled domestic and multinational companies. It aims to invest in a concentrated portfolio of stocks of high-quality growth companies at sensible prices. The selected companies should exhibit relatively stable and predictable earnings growth that can be sustained for extended periods.


The highly experienced and stable investment specialist team adheres to a clearly defined, bottom-up approach that focuses on in-depth company research. The team manages the portfolio actively with the aim to participate in rising markets and protect capital during declining markets.
