Investor Confidence Index rises slightly from 88.4 to 89.7 in June

RELATED TOPICS​

Investor confidence rose 1.3 points in June to 89.7 from May’s revised reading of 88.4, the State Street Investor Confidence Index shows.

Confidence continued its decline in North America, falling 6.3 points to 92.2 from May’s revised reading of 98.5. 

Other regions, by contrast, saw an improvement in confidence. Among European investors confidence rose 5.4 points from 92.3 to 97.7, and in Asia confidence ticked up 1.7 point from 100.9 to 102.6.

Developed through State Street Global Markets’ research partnership, State Street Associates, by Harvard University professor Ken Froot and State Street Associates Paul O’Connell, the State Street Investor Confidence Index measures investor confidence on a quantitative basis by analysing the actual buying and selling patterns of institutional investors.

“Despite seeing a rise in confidence globally, North American institutional investors remained jittery this month, and their risk appetite returned to levels last seen in spring 2009,” says Froot. “Question marks remain over the state of the US job market and overall US aggregate demand and these, in turn, have led to diminished expectations about the pace of economic recovery.”

"We do see some evidence of a stabilisation in risk appetite outside North America,” adds O’Connell. “Indeed a look at the underlying data confirms that the strongest regional flows are into emerging markets, with the exception of emerging Eastern Europe. In addition, institutions outside of North America have been steadily accumulating US equities.”
