The sustainable investor for a changing world

European large cap equity strategy

Key features

A high-conviction portfolio of European large-cap stocks

A bottom-up approach that integrates ESG factors

An experienced, local portfolio management team with expertise across sectors

Investment philosophy 

We believe that superior long-term share price performance is driven by above-average sustainable earnings growth. Central to this are industry structure and the company’s position within that industry.

We seek to exploit the market’s increasingly short-term investment horizon by investing in companies when their longer-term investment attributes are masked by shorter-term trends or noise. 

Investment process

Our European Large Cap strategy follows a disciplined bottom-up process:

  • Idea generation: where we leverage five primary sources of ideas
  • Analysis: where we conduct our proprietary research
  • Portfolio construction: where we implement out convictions

Team and resources

Our European Equity Large Cap team is based in London and Paris. Peter Abbott, who has more than 36 years of industry experience, leads the team.

The team consists of portfolio managers and research analysts with expertise across different sectors. They benefit from access to our global trading and risk management platform, Sustainability Centre, Quantitative Research Group and Macro Research team.  

Investments are subject to market fluctuations and the risks inherent in investments in securities. The value of investments and the income they generate may go down as well as up and it is possible that investors will not recover their initial outlay, the strategies described being in risk of capital loss. There is no guarantee that the performance objective will be achieved.
