Focus on Jupiter Asset Management Investment Trusts: Jupiter Emerging and Frontier Income Trust PLC (JEFI): holds a portfolio of stocks in emerging and frontier markets, all of which have under-appreciated potential.
Jupiter Green Investment Trust PLC (JGC): focuses on companies that are designing technological solutions for the world’s environmental challenges;
Jupiter US Smaller Companies PLC (JUS): is focused on finding attractively priced US companies which often fall below the radar of most individual investors.
Each of these three trusts advocate active investment management – picking stocks regardless of benchmark considerations. Many of the stocks are unknown to UK private clients, either because of their size, their geographic location or their industry focus.
