in europe, some look for good... we look for the best!

Europe’s growth recovery, increasing business confidence and accommodative monetary policy make it an attractive destination for investment.

These strong economic fundamentals are not yet priced into European equity market valuations.

We believe that companies generating a return on capital in excess of their cost of capital outperform over the long term.

A disciplined approach to identifying such companies should be complemented by fundamental analysis to identify best-in-class stocks and opportunistic investments.

LO FUNDS-EUROPE HIGH CONVICTION invests in a portfolio focused on high-quality European companies at attractive valuations and would be suitable for investors seeking a steady return from equity markets over the long term.

Already recognised as Strong by Fitch, AAA by Citywire and 4 stars by Morningstar1, Portfolio Managers Peter Dionisio and Cyril Marquaire have been hand-picked by Citywire to feature amongst their EuroStars Top 250 Fund Managers in 2017.

important information

Important information on ratings. The Citywire fund manager ratings are based on the rolling 3-year risk adjusted performance of each fund manager vs their benchmark(s). Any manager that is outperforming their benchmark(s) over a rolling 36 month time period is awarded a rating from Citywire. On average, only around the top 25% of the 15,000 managers that Citywire track are outperforming their benchmark each month and therefore only these managers receive a rating from Citywire. Citywire then break these ratings down into the 4 levels of rating; the top 10% (of the outperforming managers), receive AAA, the next 20% AA, the next 30% A and the final 40% +. A manager will only lose their rating if they underperform their benchmark(s) over this 3 year period. Performance ranking against the Morningstar universe in base currency (oldest share class in the Morningstar category EAA OE Europe Flex-Cap Equity). EuroStars feature from 1 November 2017. Citywire assessed over 10.000 fund managers -the top 250 of this universe qualify for the Euro Stars rating, calculated using risk-adjusted performance over three years. To be eligible, a fund manager needs to run a fund that is registered for sale in at least 3 European countries.

The strategy may include the use of derivatives. Derivatives often involve a high degree of financial risk because a relatively small movement in the price of the underlying security or benchmark may result in a disproportionately large movement in the price of the derivative and are not suitable for all investors. No representation regarding the suitability of these instruments and strategies for a particular investor is made.
