Investors looking for long-term capital growth and exposure to overseas markets should consider investing in the BlackRock European Dynamic Fund, according to The Share Centre,
Launched in 2002, the BlackRock European Dynamic fund aims to achieve capital growth by investing in companies listed in Europe – excluding the UK, whilst being managed on a concentrated basis with the portfolio typically holding between 35 and 65 companies at any given time.
Commenting, Andy Parsons, advice team manager at The Share Centre said: "It is well suited to investors looking to add diversification to a portfolio that is generally UK focused. Adding the BlackRock European Dynamic fund would be a natural progression into overseas markets, while maintaining close geographical proximity to the UK."
Explaining the benefits of investing in the European markets, he said: "European exposure offers investors the ability to invest in the expertise of other countries, such as Germany who is at the forefront of world class engineering and car manufacturing and Denmark a leader in alternative energy solutions."
Highly experienced fund manager Alistair Hibbert, who has been at helm of the fund since 2008 having previously worked for Scottish Widows Investment Partnership European team, uses a 'bottom up' approach to identify opportunities that hold either growth or value investment characteristics.
According to The Share Centre, on a cumulative basis, the fund has outperformed its sector even in difficult market conditions, returning over 88 per cent compared to 39 per cent in the past five years.
"For investors prepared to venture outside of the UK shoreline, we believe this fund will add diversification and exposure to a key part of the global economy," Mr Parson added.
