Investment summary

European Assets Trust (EAT) aims to achieve capital growth through investing in listed small- and medium-sized companies in Europe, excluding the UK. It is also focused on capital preservation, seeking quality companies with strong business models and balance sheets that can sustain long-term earnings growth through economic cycles. The trust has delivered annualised NAV total returns of 11.2% over the past 10 years, while a high payout policy supports a generous yield, currently 6.2%. Leading indicators suggest that Europe’s recovery, which started later than many major economies, remains embedded. Notwithstanding higher equities valuations, the manager continues to find attractive investment ideas and is focused on companies’ structural growth characteristics.
