European Equities Rated Funds

Actively managed funds and trusts can add real value for investors seeking exposure to this diverse region of countries and the companies that do business there - several thousand are listed across the continent. For a few of our Rated Funds that include the UK in their universe, the choice is even wider.

In 2017 the focus of worries over the European Union's stability has moved away from the periphery and closer to the centre. Compounded by the uncertainty generated by the UK's Brexit decision, the rise of populist political parties in core eurozone countries, especially France, Italy and the Netherlands, where elections are due, has made many investors nervous.

But Europe is not only about the eurozone - several European nations such as Switzerland and Sweden are not members of the single currency but boast world-class companies.

In general, the strong performance of our 10 Rated Funds shows why investors would do well not to ignore European equity funds - gains of up to 200 per cent-plus over five years have been made.
