Aims to deliver steady and less volatile returns than European stockmarkets over the longer term

Manager Paul Casson has 15+ years experience managing long/short, pan-European equities

The Artemis Pan-European Absolute Return Fund is an equity long/short fund. It aims to deliver a positive return over rolling three-year periods, irrespective of changing market conditions.

To achieve this, it combines a traditional portfolio of long European stocks (where the manager expects a companys share price to rise) with a portfolio of short positions (where he aims to make money from an anticipated fall in a shares price), allowing manager Paul Casson to use his stock-picking skills to profit from falling, as well as rising, share prices.(A short position is the sale of an asset which the fund does not physically own with the aim of buying it later to secure a profit. The fund uses derivatives to achieve a short position synthetically).

: the manager aims to build a simple portfolio focusing on the best ideas across the European region.

: Paul combines market themes with detailed accounting investigation to select companies through rigorous stock-picking.

: the fund aims to deliver returns with significantly less ups and downs than stockmarkets overall.

: the funds holdings are well diversified across typically 60 to 100
