Ben Ritchie, head of European Equities at Aberdeen Standard Investments (ASI) will be outlining his views on Europe in 2020 when he joins the InvestmentEuroepe's inaugural Funds to Watch Geneva 2020, hosted at the InterContinental Hotel 21-23 April.
Ritchie will discuss why Europe remains a perfect market for well-resourced stock-pickers. How its currently unloved status gives the opportunity to find compelling mispriced investment opportunities and how the highly experienced team, world class research platform and integrated ESG capability makes ASI extremely well positioned to take advantage.
"Investment in Europe also demands a highly selective approach and our focus on true "best ideas" means we remain very enthusiastic about the portfolio's prospects despite the macro-economic environment. This stems from our companies benefiting from powerful structural drivers such as demographic change, enabling attractive upside capture. While our focus on strong balance sheets, ESG risks and sustainable business models lends downside protection, a particularly desirable characteristic in today's uncertain and late cycle market," says Ritchie.
Ritchie is the head of European Equities at Aberdeen Standard Investments. He originally joined Aberdeen Asset Management in 2002 on the graduate scheme.
