Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management

DeAWM - Ingen oro för inflation

Pressmeddelande   •   Maj 19, 2014 10:05 CEST

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

The views that our Co-Chief investment officer Asoka Wöhrmann expresses in the May issue of the new CIO View carry a lot of weight: He and his colleagues at Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management manage client assets totaling 934 billion euros (as of March 31, 2014).

His nine positions are:

·  Global economic growth outlook for 2014 remains unchanged: 3.7%
·  The Eurozone will manage modest growth this year: 0.9%
·  Commodity prices are likely to soften. Oil prices will remain under pressure
·  Fair valuations and rising earnings support equities
·  Investor interest tightens Eurozone periphery spreads
·  Fears of a deflationary crisis in the Eurozone are overblown
·  Euro Stoxx 50 Index moves upwards, but it will be a bumpy ride
·  Emerging markets start to appeal again – but be selective
·  Asset allocation of our balanced model portfolio for clients based in Europe, Middle East & Africa:

Fixed income: 43,6%, Equities: 45%, Absolute return: 10%, Commodities: 1.4%

Also in CIO View:

-Focus: Eurozone – inflation low, deflation no
