The European Select Fund (Columbia Threadneedle) aims to achieve growth through capital gains and income by investing at least 75% of its assets in a relatively concentrated portfolio of equities of companies domiciled in Continental Europe or which have significant Continental European operations. The fund will select companies in which the fund manager has a high conviction that the current share price does not reflect the prospects for that business. These companies may be chosen from within any industry or economic sector, with significant sector and share weightings taken at the discretion of the fund manager. There is no restriction on the company size, however, investment will tend to focus on larger companies. The fund will typically invest in fewer than 50 companies. The fund has a concentrated portfolio which leads to increased levels of stock specific risk.The fund may also further invest in other securities (including fixed interest securities, other equities and money market securities) and collective investment schemes (including funds managed by Columbia Threadneedle companies), when deemed appropriate. This fund invests some of its assets outside the eurozone so a currency risk arises for a euro investor. This fund is managed by Columbia Threadneedle.
