In their words (as of 31 Jul 2017)

The fund rose in line with the benchmark in July. Top performers included Norwegian internet bank Skandiabanken (following an announcement that it would leverage its high customer satisfaction ratings and scalable platform to enter adjacent markets including savings and insurance), French video game publisher Ubisoft (due to continued improvement in revenue mix as a result of the fast growth in high margin digital downloads) and Dutch industrial solutions provider TKH (due to broadly based growth in various verticals including Machine Vision). Detractors included the French and Swiss flooring companies Tarkett and Forbo (after both companies quantified the fines they expect to receive from an ongoing antitrust investigation) and Finnish mining equipment manufacturer Metso (due to poor operational execution impacting on quarterly results). The medium-term outlook remains positive for European smaller companies, given high earnings growth expectations and the supportive global economic environment.
