European Long-Term Unconstrained

The Martin Currie European Long-Term Unconstrained (ELTU) strategy’s objective is long-term capital appreciation. Central to our proposition is investing with a long-term horizon of 5-10 years. This timescale allows the characteristics of quality growth firms to manifest themselves and delivers investors the benefits of compounding returns.

Strategy introduction

The strategy invests in quality growth companies. These companies deliver strong long-term growth through their compounding potential – a factor often not priced in by the market’s frequent myopia.

To deliver long-term value creation, the investment process is built around five key tenets: fundamental systematic research, proprietary data analytics, accounting expertise, stewardship leadership and at the heart of the process - high conviction, long-term investing.

As long-term investors we need to establish the future drivers of a company’s growth and our research maps out a firm’s thematic exposure, it’s business model and geographic sources of revenue. Building a portfolio focused solely around more ‘conventional’ market exposures such as sector, country and stylistic factors is essentially looking in the rear-view mirror in our view.

We want to consider the potential impact of the very real disruption on companies as both society and technology evolves, therefore analysis of disruption risks is critical to our investment framework.
