Equities Global equity markets were flat (in € terms) over May. The returns to Euro investors were lower because of the Euro rising against the U.S. Dollar by nearly 2%.

This caused equity markets to fall but the U.S. Federal Reserve and the ECB both said that they believed that this was a...

With hopes that they may receive final regulatory approval by year-end, many governments began making plans for a possible vaccine programme in early 2021. These developments also saw stocks that have suffered the most since last February performing strongly over the month, with...
