Investec Europe Ltd, Credit Union Newsletter, Q4 2020

Investec Europe Ltd, Credit Union Newsletter, Q4 2020

We are delighted to launch our latest Credit Union newsletter for Q4. In it, our chief economist Ronan Dunphy takes a look at the prevailing trends in the Irish Economy, the financial sector, and investment markets. The impact of Covid and return to lockdown continue to have a major impact, but rising hope of a vaccine or vaccines becoming available early next year, along with a resolution of the uncertainty around the US presidential election have served to boost investor (and overall) sentiment. Our head trader Justin Doyle also gives his view on markets which unfortunately doesn’t see any end to the low interest rate environment prevailing in the Eurozone at the moment. Our Compliance team take another look at legislation heading our direction down the line, this time the “SEAR”. Finally, we take a look at the success of the 20x20 initiative, a  campaign which Investec have been very proud to support over the past 2 years. Aimed at boosting participation in, coverage of, and attendance at women’s sporting events by the end of 2020, the initiative has been a great success and is now looking to continue to promote equality in women’s sport beyond 2020.

If you have any questions, or would like to discuss anything in this quarters update, please don’t hesitate to contact your relationship manager.

 

Research and Insights

Our Market Bulletin for November shines a spotlight on the residential market, which has proven remarkably resilient this year, particularly from a price perspective. We are mindful however that a prolonged period of heightened economic restrictions (or a repeated on/off scenario) could have a longer-lasting impact on confidence and prompt more enduring behavioural changes by households, notwithstanding the positive news this week on vaccine development. Investec Treasury looks at the steady march lower of interest rates and how this trend is unlikely to reverse in the near future. The Commodities desk examines the recent uptick in oil prices, Investec Corporate Finance looks back on a decent quarter for domestic M&A activity and our colleagues on Investec’s lending desk round-up the latest news from the commerical property market.
