  • Performance

    Since 1972 the European Assets Trust has offered investors access to the often overlooked benefits of small and mid-cap investing in Europe.

    As a broad, diverse and under-researched opportunity set the European small and mid-cap universe provides an ideal environment for fundamental company research based active fund management. And in the right hands there’s potential for an actively managed investment strategy to deliver both attractive investment returns and meaningful outperformance.

    European Assets Trust has provided its shareholders with strong capital gains, relative outperformance and an attractive dividend of 6%*.

  • The value of shares and the income from them is not guaranteed and can fall as well as rise due to stock market movements. Past performance is not a guide to future performance. When you sell your shares, you might get back less than you originally invested. If markets fall, gearing can magnify the negative impact on performance. Changes in rates of exchange may have an adverse effect on the value, price or income of investments. Emerging Markets, Unquoted Companies and Smaller companies carry a higher degree of risk and their value can be more sensitive to market movement; their shares may be less liquid and performance may be more volatile.
