 Edison issues update on JPMorgan European Smaller Cos (JESC)

London, UK, 10 January 2017 Edison issues update on JPMorgan European Smaller Cos (JESC) JPMorgan European Smaller Companies Trust (JESC) is managed by a dedicated, highly experienced, three-man team. The 'best ideas' portfolio, which generally comprises 60-80 holdings, currently numbers 63. Stocks are selected on a bottom-up basis from a universe of c 1,000 companies, which constitute the Euromoney Smaller Companies ex-UK index, the trust's benchmark. Long-term performance has been strong, as evidenced by its 10- and 20-year NAV and share price returns, which comfortably outstrip the benchmark and the MSCI Europe ex-UK index. JPMorgan European Smaller Companies Trust (JESC) aims to achieve capital growth from a diversified portfolio of shares in smaller European companies (excluding the UK). Liquidity and borrowings are actively managed (investments 80-120% of net assets) with a view to enhancing returns to shareholders. As JESC's investment policy emphasises capital growth, rather than income, the dividend is expected to vary from year to year. JESC is benchmarked against the Euromoney (formerly HSBC) Smaller European Companies ex-UK total return index in sterling terms. Click here to view the full report.
