2017 was another strong year for European equities. After several years of strong returns it is worth asking whether the best of the stock market’s returns this cycle are behind us. Investment Director Niall Gallagher argues that the answer to this question for European equities is a resounding “no”.
-Since the market bottom in 2009 the return from European equities pales in comparison to the nearly 400% return of the US equity market
-The positive news for European equities is that earnings are now beginning to grow again in Europe with double digit earnings growth forecast for the MSCI Europe index for 2018. Construction output, too, has visibly turned positive.
-The next leg of returns and potentially the ‘catch up’ trade with US equities should be earnings driven.
Niall remains extremely positive and believes there is still significant upside for the asset class.
With losses over $100 billion, 2017 was one of the worst years for insured disasters in recent history. Three major hurricanes in quick succession – Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria – wreaked havoc and highlighted the insurance “disaster gap”.

In an increasingly correlated world, a well-managed ILS allocation can offer investors a genuine a source of diversification. Find out how.

Chronic labour shortages are driving improved company productivity.
