Capital Group launches European Opportunities fund

  • Uncovering long-term, sustainable global growth opportunities for investors
  • Flexibility to invest in distinctive European companies across the market cap spectrum

Capital Group, one of the largest and most experienced investment companies in the world, with assets under management of more than $2.3 trillion[1], today announced the launch of Capital Group European Opportunities (LUX) (European Opportunities), expanding the firm’s equity fund range for European and Asian investors.

Structured as a Luxembourg-domiciled UCITS, the fund offers access to a strategy previously only available as a segregated account in Europe and Asia. The strategy has a 28-year track record of accessing sustainable global growth from distinctive European companies. Having returned an excess 5.5% per annum[2] over the past five years, the strategy has also proved resilient, with a track record of successfully navigating up and down markets and different style-driven market environments. The fund sits alongside the firm’s existing European equity fund, Capital Group European Growth and Income Fund (LUX) and adds a quality growth-orientated European strategy for Capital Group’s client base alongside existing US, emerging markets and global equities funds.

Capital Group’s distinctive, bottom-up fundamental investment approach focuses on all aspects of a company, including where it generates revenues and profits. European Opportunities gives investors access to industry-leading companies that are not primarily reliant on the health of the domestic European economy, instead having a global client base which provides diversified revenue streams.

Martyn Hole, Investment Director, comments: “Europe is home to leading companies whose profiles are difficult to find anywhere else in the world – luxury goods and online shopping are good examples. European Opportunities is a great example of the breadth and depth of our research capabilities, helping investors access European investment opportunities from a truly global investment perspective.”

Alexandra Haggard, Head of Product and Investment Services for Europe and Asia comments:Capital Group continues to execute ambitious growth plans in Europe and Asia, launching 12 Luxembourg-domiciled funds in the past five years. This latest launch continues the build out of our differentiated yet complementary Luxembourg fund range to serve clients in the years ahead.”

Capital Group now has 30 registered Luxembourg-domiciled UCITS funds across equities, fixed income and multi-asset.
