Eastspring Investments Unit Trusts - Pan European Fund

Looking to invest in Blue Chip European companies?

Eastspring Investments Unit Trusts - Pan European aims to maximise long-term total return by investing in equity and equity-related securities of companies, which are incorporated, or have their area of primary activity, in Europe (including the United Kingdom). The Fund may also invest in depository receipts, including American Depository Receipts (ADRs) and Global Depository Receipts (GDRs), debt securities convertible into common shares, preference shares and warrants. The Manager intends to achieve this investment objective by investing all or substantially all of the assets of the Eastspring Investments Unit Trusts - Pan European Fund into Luxembourg-domiciled Eastspring Investments - Pan European Fund which shares the same investment objective.



Why Europe?

  • Positive changes to European corporate culture have attracted formerly US-centric investors to migrate their funds to Europe. There is confidence that the new business climate would boost equity prices over the long term
  • Businesses are now more competitive as European integration erodes protectionist tendencies and businesses acquire a more competitive mindset
  • Restructuring has been taking place as companies strive for better corporate governance and accountability to their shareholders. These developments usually translate into higher returns on capital and improved shareholder value
  • Stock markets' long-term potential is enormous. The economies of the European bloc (even excluding the UK) are, together, almost as large as the US. But they lag behind the US in terms of stock market value. So, as Europe plays catch-up with the US in the capital stakes, the growth potential of European stocks would be staggering
