It’s still a relative call
By the time equities regain traction relative to fixed income, we believe Europe will provide the leaders. The main reasons are abnormally low volatility compared with the US and global equities and the ongoing stabilisation of the trade-weighted dollar index. Our preferred countries are the UK, France and the Netherlands. It is too early for Germany and Spain, and maybe too late for Italy. Avoid Switzerland, Sweden and Austria.
