Why invest in European equities?

You might think of Europe as a bureaucratic juggernaut, but the region produces its fair share of big stock market winners. These opportunities range from small- and mid-sized companies occupying valuable niches in broader ecosystems to world-leading consumer franchises. Excitingly, these clusters of excellence have the potential to evolve radically, helping industries and society tackle major changes in the years ahead.

How do we invest in European equities?

We’ve managed dedicated European equities portfolios since 1985. These are high-conviction, containing a small number of select companies that we aim to hold for years because of their potential for returns. 

We look for businesses with strong growth prospects and sustainable competitive advantages. Often, exceptional people manage or control them, including families or founders.
