The equity strategy targets high-quality listed European companies endorsed by the management team. These firms not only bolster European sovereignty but also benefit from regional policies promoting sectoral autonomy and economic resilience, it explained.

The firm’s equity management team aims to construct a diversified portfolio comprising approximately 40-50 European companies poised to capitalise on the rise of European sovereignty while offering an attractive risk-return profile.
