Insights by Stefan Hofrichter

Investment themes & strategy
While Europe faces its own share of political uncertainty, many of its headwinds are similar to those faced by capital markets around the world – not specific to Europe. In fact, with trade wars hurting the US and China, and with the Fed in danger of overreaching, European equities may be in a strong relative position.

Investment themes & strategy
Economic inequality has been steadily rising thanks to the rise of automation, declining unionisation and the growth of the financial sector. But loose monetary policy also plays a role. For decades, easy money has significantly increased wealth and income inequality on a structural level, fundamental changing how the global economy operates.
