Dollar driving investment returns
7 June 2018
The fairly good market development in May was overshadowed by political instability in Italy and Spain. The social problems related to the countries’ debt are largely the same as those that triggered a deeper political crisis a few years ago. Investors once again fear the worst-case scenario, i.e. the countries’ uncontrolled exit from the euro zone, even though it does not seem likely. From investors’ perspective, central bank policies and foreign exchange rates on both sides of the Atlantic play a more central role than politics. During the past few months, the currency markets have experienced a material change that may give the equity and corporate bond market development a positive boost.
