Our view on this Fund

This fund does not feature on our Wealth 50 list of what we believe are the best funds in each sector. If a fund is not within our Wealth 50 this is not necessarily a recommendation to sell.

Our view on the sector

Most investors look to the UK to invest in smaller companies. But this means you could miss out on an array of opportunities available overseas. In today's globalised world, a company's location can be irrelevant and there are lots of successful businesses operating across the globe. Europe's economic and political issues have been well-documented in recent years and many investors have overlooked the region. That means lots of smaller companies have been ignored and their share prices don't properly reflect their future growth prospects. Long-term investors willing to ride out volatility could be rewarded. But you should remember smaller companies are riskier than bigger ones.
