The Fund aims to achieve the investment objective primarily by investing in equities of companies listed on regulated European stock exchanges.

The Fund is managed on a concentrated basis in Europe and may also invest outside of Europe if the investment manager believes that it is in the interest of the Fund.

Four key criteria for stock selection:

The CRUX European Fund employs the same rigorous investment approach as the CRUX European Special Situations Fund, focusing on four key criteria for stock selection.

Identifiable Business Strategy

Companies with high barriers to entry and strong pricing power, enabling them to produce robust earnings with good growth potential


Businesses whose management have proven track records as well as meaningful stakes in the companies they run

Sound Finances

Companies that are not highly capital intensive but generate good cash flow that is either invested in the business, put to work in corporate actions such as M&A or returned to shareholders as dividends


Companies that have relatively conservative valuations versus their peer group
