Find out what strategists at Wells Fargo Investment Institute think may lie ahead for Europe.

Discover What Europe’s Future may Hold in Store

The United Kingdom’s June 2016 “Brexit” vote to leave the European Union shocked many and prompted German Chancellor Angela Merkel to observe that the E.U. had reached a turning point. The question for investors today is: Which direction will it take?

In September, Paul Christopher and Sean Lynch, Wells Fargo Investment Institute (WFII) global strategists, visited Germany and Sweden in search of an answer. The “Europe at a Turning Point” report discusses what they found and what they believe may lie ahead. Highlights include:

  • An economic recovery is continuing but is being hindered by high corporate debt levels.
  • Finding a solution to the problem of nonperforming loans, which is undermining bank profitability, remains elusive.
  • The refugee crisis is adding social and economic challenges but could eventually reverse the region’s declining population trend.
  • Investors may want to be selective and look for themes now and in the years ahead.
