Global equity markets rose 4.5% (in € terms) during May, helped by the strength of the U.S. dollar against the Euro. Equity markets rose during the first half of month, supported by generally solid corporate and economic data, but investors then got nervous over the deteriorating political situations in both Italy and Spain, with the prospect of further elections in Italy being seen potentially as a de facto referendum on euro membership although an agreement late in the month between the...

Global equities rose 2.9% (in € terms) during April, recovering some of the losses of the previous two months. At the start of April, investors remained concerned over issues with some technology stocks and also the threat of a global trade war which continued to simmer in the background. Fears that the threat of potential U.S. air strikes on Syria could lead to an even more serious situation involving Russia receded after it became apparent that the air strikes would be just one-offs for...

Global equity markets fell 2.8% (in € terms) during March, in what was another volatile month for investors, following the falls experienced in the preceding month. Eurozone equities fell 2.1%, with investors reacting badly in early March to President Trump’s plans to impose tariffs on steel and aluminium imports to the U.S, sparking fears of a global trade war.

Global equities fell 2.0% (in € terms) during February in what was a return to volatility not seen by markets since 2016. Eurozone equities fell 3.8%, with markets initially falling sharply in early February after a better-than-expected U.S. jobs report increased investor fears about rising inflation which may lead to more interest rate rises than previously expected. Market assumptions about interest rate rises have consistently trailed the Feds market guidance and this was the shock...

Global equity markets rose 2.0% (in € terms) during January. Eurozone equities rose 3.3%, their best month since last October. Continuing positive global economic and company earnings data initially reassured investors despite the negative impact of the stronger euro on the region’s many exporters. However, equity markets fell towards month-end due to rising global bond yields on the back of stronger emerging economic and inflation data and profit-taking. North American equities rose...

North American equities rose 1.1% in $ terms (0.6% in € terms) in December, again hitting all-time highs....

Eurozone equities fell 1.9%, with some investors taking profits following the very strong gains over the previous ten months (+17%), and after markets hitting a two year high at the start of November.

Q3 corporate earnings were also a positive for markets, with over 65% of those reported beating market expectations.

Global equity markets rose 2.7% (in € terms) during September. Eurozone equities rose 4.4%, recovering from their falls in August, helped by continuing positive global economic data and also the weakening of the Euro which was a positive for the many large exporters in the region. The banking sector was boosted by expectations that central banks in both Europe and the U.S. will tighten monetary policy in the coming months. Markets also rose after the German election result although delays...
