EQF invests in European companies with a stable profit growth, i.e. companies that the portfolio managers estimate have the ability to keep profit levels even during a recession. The portfolio is highly concentrated, with 18-25 holdings. The investment perspective has a longer time horizon in the sense that there is no short-term trading. As the portfolio management allocates only with individual stock potential in mind, instead of according to their relation to weights in different indices, the fund performance can differ substantially from the market performance. The portfolio management is based on quantitative and qualitative investment criteria which have been tested for several years. This model offers the portfolio management a solid support for decisions regardless of scenarios.
