Mark explained that his management style is about keeping volatility low without compromising on returns
As Europe starts to climb the upward curve out of recession and into recovery naturally strong performance comes through and this attracts investors. There are many European funds to select from and choosing the right fund can be tricky. Many funds have similar holdings and for those focusing on the pure large cap space there is likely to be some crossover with global funds.
Launched in 2011 the Artemis European Opportunities Fund is certainly one for consideration. The main features of the fund are – it is a multi-cap fund but currently with a focus on the mid to large cap space. It has maximum holdings of 60 (currently there are 51) and it is based on a proven process going back to 2001. The performance since launch has been strong (although future performance is not guaranteed) and the fund size remains relatively small.
In this update with the co-manager, Mark Page, we discuss Europe, the process and what makes his fund different.
