Capture Europe's recovery




The outlook appears brighter for European equities. With political risks fading, investors are increasingly focusing on Europe’s positive economic momentum and prospects for stronger corporate earnings growth.


The European economy is now exceeding expectations and helping to drive global growth. Stronger purchasing managers’ indices point to a sustained upturn in activity, and we expect regional growth to hit 2% in 2017.


Stronger growth is boosting company profits—we expect European earnings to grow by 10%-15% this year. Cyclical sectors, which are well represented in Europe, could be among the biggest beneficiaries—further increasing the potential of European equities.
