Our Insights

1
A surprise from the ECB: Corporate QE
The ECB has announced another round of quantitative easing (QE) along with a further reduction of interest rates. The QE programme will now include corporate bonds. These measures are designed to boost eurozone demand and raise inflation expectations.
2
A steady outlook
Low inflation, low oil prices and a weak currency should continue to support European markets. Relative to other regions the outlook is steady and real GDP growth is set to improve.
3
Access to the world’s leading companies
Europe is home to some of the world’s biggest and best-known brands. A European fund can give you access to a broad range of some of the region’s top performing multi-national companies.
4
BREXIT is unlikely to create a sudden economic crisis in Europe
It is difficult to predict what will happen if the UK votes to leave. However, it would take around 2-5 years for any exit to be negotiated so there is unlikely to be any sudden economic or political crisis in Europe.
