In the old continent, stock exchanges usually move at a calmer pace than those in the US or Nordic countries. The largest European stock market is the UK, in which a significant part of the fund's assets are invested. The fund's assets are invested in line with its benchmark index in listed large-cap companies. At the same time, this means that investments are focused on certain industries, such as financials, oil and gas, and pharmaceuticals. However, with already a small amount, the investor gets wide diversification into several countries and industries.
OP-Europe Index is suitable for an investor seeking a balanced alternative providing diversification into European stocks. As typical with index funds, investing in this fund requires the investor's own interest in market movements and readiness to respond to them. Here the portfolio manager's role mainly consists of cost-efficient execution of the fund according to the index. On the other hand, OP-Europe Index offers an agile and low-cost way to execute one's own view of global stock market performance.
As part of an overall asset management portfolio, OP-Europe Index is naturally a good selection for anyone. Thanks to their low fees, index funds can well complement actively managed funds in the portfolio of, say, a long-term saver or pension saver. With index funds, you can also make an agreement for a systematic investment plan, which easily enables monthly investments in index funds for increasing one's assets. This fund is primarily recommended to an investor who intends to redeem his/her units after seven years at the earliest.
