European Equities: From Crisis to Rebirth
Summary: Over the last three years, European equity markets have been severely punished, and many observers have made the case for Europe's economic disintegration. However, the fiscal and economic union remains largely intact today, and structural reforms have begun yielding results throughout the region. We believe Europe is now in a firmer position to withstand bouts of fear and volatility than it has been in recent history. In addition, we feel many companies in the continent represent compelling opportunities, as they have strong fundamentals despite investor risk aversion.
