Growth made in Europe

Large European technology and market leaders enjoy long-term, above-average growth thanks to continuous innovation and sound business models. Highly dynamic hidden champions often take the form of small- and medium-sized companies. With the all cap approach of our European equity funds, you can take advantage of all market segments.

At the core of this focused approach is Quality Growth, i.e. companies of all sizes that impress with high returns on equity and sustainable growth rates over long periods of time - and that are relatively independent of economic growth.

If you go dig deeper, you can find companies of all sizes that are innovative, have unique business models and dynamic growth profiles. We have identified these companies mainly in the technology, healthcare and consumer sectors – but also in industrial goods and services.

The large companies in the portfolios offer strong and often less volatile growth. They are the anchor of the fund. Medium-sized companies and especially the "hidden champions" often receive less attention from investors - wrongly so, because they demonstrate very dynamic and sustainable growth trajectories.
