  • Repeatable bottom-up stock picking approach
  • Searching for Europe’s strongest companies
  • Portfolio manager with a demonstrable track record
  • Concentrated portfolio of 30 to 40 stocks


GLG Pan European Equity Growth strategy is an actively managed, long-only equity strategy that invests in European stocks across market capitalisations.

The team’s stock selection is index agnostic and, rather than viewing exposure in a benchmark-relative context, takes a long-term, ownership approach to building a fundamentally selected, high conviction portfolio of scalable companies.

Core to the process is identifying and investing in Europe’s strongest companies through a focussed, bottom-up research approach. The team is uncompromising in its search for quality companies that are able to demonstrate sustainable competitive advantages over the next 5 years and beyond.

Companies that meet the demanding criteria set out above typically fall into the following two categories:

  • Established Leaders - Established Leaders are formidable market leaders in their industry, with clear roadmaps for earnings and free cashflow, and a 5 year expansion path. At any time 50-100% of the portfolio will typically be invested in this category.
  • Emerging Winners - Emerging Winners are high growth names in the vanguard of a new or existing market which already demonstrate clear competitive advantages. A maximum of 33% of the portfolio will typically be in this category.

One should carefully consider the risks associated with investing, whether the strategy suits your investment requirements and whether you have sufficient resources to bear any losses which may result from an investment:

Investment Objective Risk - There is no guarantee that the Strategy will achieve its investment objective.

Market Risk - The Strategy is subject to normal market fluctuations and the risks associated with investing in international securities markets and therefore the value of your investment and the income from it may rise as well as fall and you may not get back the amount originally invested.

Counterparty Risk - The Strategy will be exposed to credit risk on counterparties with which it trades in relation to on-exchange traded instruments such as futures and options and where applicable, ‘over-the- counter’("OTC","non-exchange") transactions. OTC instruments may also be less liquid and are not afforded the same protections that may apply to participants trading instruments on an organised exchange.

Currency Risk - The value of investments designated in another currency may rise and fall due to exchange rate fluctuations. Adverse movements in currency exchange rates may result in a decrease in return and a loss of capital. It may not be possible or practicable to successfully hedge against the currency risk exposure in all circumstances.

Liquidity Risk - The Strategy may make investments or hold trading positions in markets that are volatile and which may become illiquid. Timely and cost efficient sale of trading positions can be impaired by decreased trading volume and/or increased price volatility..

Concentration Risk - The Strategy invests in a limited number of investments may be held which can increase the volatility of performance.

Financial Derivatives - The Strategy will invest financial derivative instruments ("FDI") (instruments whose prices are dependent on one or more underlying asset) to achieve its investment objective. The use of FDI involves additional risks such as high sensitivity to price movements of the asset on which it is based. The extensive use of FDI may significantly multiply the gains or losses.

Leverage - The Strategy's use of FDI may result in increased leverage which may lead to significant losses.

Single Region/Country Risk - The Strategy is a specialist country-specific Strategy or focuses on a particular geographic region, the investment carries greater risk than a more internationally diversified portfolio.
