Frankfurt-based equity investment specialist CHOM Capital has launched a fund for European small caps. CHOM Capital PURE Small Cap Europe UI (PURE) will open to investors on 24 September 2018.
It is the second equity product to be offered by the investment boutique co-founded by Christoph Benner, Oliver Schnatz and Martina Neske. Its market launch comes six months after the soft close of the successful equity fund CHOM Capital Active Return Europe UI (CARE).
CHOM Capital is issuing PURE together with Universal-Investment.
To manage the new PURE product, the portfolio management team at CHOM Capital, recently expanded to include investment expert Paul Althans, who will continue to rely on the same fundamentally driven investment strategy used to run the CARE fund.
The fund’s equity experts conduct in-depth fundamental analyses of target companies and their management to pinpoint a limited number of smaller European equities that qualify for the fund. The selection process is not influenced by how similar stock market indices are put together.
“European small caps have an attractive risk-return profile and with the right stock-picking they can consistently deliver superior long-term earnings“, said portfolio manager and CEO, Christoph Benner. “In addition, smaller stocks afford a greater diversification of investor portfolios than large caps“.
Like the previous CARE fund, PURE will be based on a long-term investment horizon and an exclusive investment approach.
