Improving the balance

25 Mar, 2024 | Return|

"A good investor once referred to investing as owning a garden, and I think that's a great analogy in terms of you're constantly thinking about how you can prune and weed and improve the balance."

European equities haven't been massively in favour over recent years, but under the surface there are some exceptional businesses if you look hard enough. Sharing his approach to finding quality companies is this week's Behind the Screens guest, Benjamin Moore, portfolio manager of the A-rated CT European Select fund. Speaking with Jock Glover, Ben highlights the opportunities they are finding in healthcare and luxury goods, as well as the influence of the market backdrop has on portfolio positioning.
