How it works

The Threadneedle Investments European Select Fund aims to achieve capital growth through mainly investing in a relatively concentrated portfolio of equities of companies domiciled in Continental Europe or which have significant Continental European operations.

The 'Select' investment approach means that the fund has the flexibility to take significant stock and sector positions which may lead to increased levels of volatility. The fund may also further invest in other securities (including fixed interest securities, other equities and money market securities). As this fund invests some of its assets outside the eurozone, a currency risk can arise for a euro investor. This fund is managed by Threadneedle Investments.
