European Long-Term Unconstrained

Long-term sustainable alpha generation from a portfolio of innovative, global-leading European companies.

About European Long-Term Unconstrained

The strategy is designed for investors seeking sustainable long-term outperformance of the market from a high conviction portfolio, backed by proprietary and systematic fundamental research.

The strategy’s portfolio of 20-40 quality growth companies offer sustainable growth and resilience to economic uncertainty.

Our three long-term mega trends of demographic change, the future of technology and resource scarcity, guide our proprietary fundamental research and portfolio construction. This allows us to invest on multi-decade investment horizon to meet client requirements for sustainable long-term returns.

Proprietary fundamental research can identify long-term value-creating companies undervalued by the market. We elaborate on this below:

  • The market is myopic and fades returns of quality companies too fast
  • Our proprietary fundamental research framework is able to identify these companies
  • Value creating companies compound returns over the long-term

We consider portfolio construction with equal importance to the research process, employing the same high-quality data from the research process.  Here we focus on five areas – long-term thematics, company classifications, geographic revenue/profit, end user markets and industry lifecycles. These aid our understanding of the portfolio’s diversity, effectively manage risk and ensure we are positioned to capture long-term growth.
