Our view on this Fund

Mark Nichols and Mark Heslop joined Jupiter from Threadneedle in 2019, taking over management of this fund in October 2019 from Alexander Darwall. The duo have many years' experience of investing in European companies between them, and have built a team of five since joining Jupiter. The team looks for quality European companies with the potential for sustainable growth, with a competitive advantage that others struggle to replicate.
Prior to taking over this fund we feel the managers built their own respectable track records. While Nichols focused more on larger companies, similar to this fund, Heslop took a lead on smaller businesses. We think this fund is a good option in the Europe sector and expect the managers to do well over the long run, though there are no guarantees. That said, our current choices on the Wealth Shortlist have longer track records and have delivered impressive levels of outperformance. The team is also relatively new, and we would like to see how they get on and settle over a longer period.
