European Micro Cap

Introduction

Fondita European Micro Cap invests in small, high quality companies in Europe with a market cap of less than 800 million euros.

The fund invests in smaller niche players with a strong market position and a clear focus on long term growth and shareholder value creation. We find these companies within sectors such as industrial technology, medical technology, information technology and consumer related businesses. Among Europe’s smaller niche players are several family owned companies with good growth opportunities, sound balance sheets, and a high level of profitability. Smaller companies are also potential takeover candidates.

Fondita European Micro Cap is an actively managed fund with around 30 holdings and a long term investment horizon. The fund does not invest in shares of Eastern European companies.
