Europe boasts a wide range of investment opportunities across compelling sectors where its companies are world leaders, such as technology, engineering and luxury goods.
To make the most of Europe’s potential, it is necessary to be unconstrained and have the freedom to invest anywhere in the region.
We believe in active management because it is the best way to deliver superior returns, but above all, we encourage our managers to make pragmatic decisions when the circumstances demand it.
Lead manager Iain McNeill has a long track record of investing in Europe that stretches back more than 20 years. His insight into the region and knowledge of the political and economic factors driving markets allows him to uncover opportunities that drive growth in the portfolio.
Past performance is not a guide to future performance. The value of investments may fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the amount invested. Income from investments may fluctuate. Currency fluctuations can also affect performance. Performance figures are on a bid to bid with net income reinvested basis. Valuations are based on the previous day's prices.
The management team focuses primarily on fundamental bottom-up analysis which is supplemented with a macro-economic overlay. Company meetings and research generate stock ideas for the portfolio while top-down analysis influences the country and sector stance. The fund invests across the market cap spectrum, including under-researched small/mid-caps, and is managed within a risk-aware framework.
The CF Canlife European Fund aims to provide capital growth primarily from investment in shares quoted on European markets (usually this will exclude the United Kingdom).
Please note prior to 07/07/14, the CF Canlife European Fund was known as CF Canlife European Unit Trust.
