Schroder looks to potential of Euro technology

Schroder&#39s EuroTech fund is aimed at the experienced investor who wants to


invest in a specialist technology sector.


The company believes that, despite the recent market corrections in the


Nasdaq 100 index, Europe is the next growth area for technology stocks as


many European companies are only now starting to see the potential


of new technology.


Technology stocks have been seen as possibly overvalued in the US and UK,


resulting in recent market volatility. However, European technology stocks


are up to a year behind the US and UK and therefore could have a great deal


of potential.


According to Standard & Poor&#39s Micropal, Schroder&#39s European smaller


companies fund is ranked 11th out of 16 funds based on £1,000 invested on a


bid-to-bid basis with net income reinvested over three years to April 10,


2000.
