Investing in Europe with actively managed funds and Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs)

If you decide you would like gain exposure to the broader European market, an ETF or an actively managed fund could be a way of doing so.

Investors should note that investment risk is concentrated in a specific country which means these funds are more sensitive to any localised economic, market, political or regulatory events.
