Investment Policy

Changes in capital flows

July 2018 – The latest economic forecasts of the European Central Bank and statements made by ECB President Mario Draghi have contributed to a further weakening of the euro. Due to the high weighting of the euro in the trade-weighted US dollar, a weakening of the euro against the greenback has historically often resulted in dollar strength against other currencies too, such as the yen, emerging market currencies and the Swiss franc. In addition, the trade dispute escalated by US President Trump is currently weighing on export-oriented equity markets in particular.

Market Comment

Commodities and inflation in upward trend?

July 2018 - In late phases of the global economic cycle, production capacity is generally heavily utilized, which is why more resources are required – such as labour, but also commodities. Historically, this has often led to higher rates of inflation due to higher commodity prices. Higher import prices against a backdrop of the escalating trade conflict and US sanctions against Iran could have the effect of exacerbating increases in commodity price inflation. Investors can counter rising inflation and commodity prices with a commodities focus module.

Market Comment

No Italian Summer?

June 2018 – Italy finally has a new government. But the new coalition's policy plans put it on a path to confrontation with the EU, as Italy feels it has been left in the lurch. The realization of these electoral promises could trigger a massive increase in Italy's budget deficit, as well as turbulence in the eurozone. European equities now come with higher risks attached.
