MVS Expects Good Returns From European Investments, Sees Good Value in European Equities and Hard Assets

Share Article

In comments delivered in July to Family Office Representatives, and posted today on the firm website, MVS Chief Investment Strategist John Olympitis calls for out-performance of European Assets and expects them to produce greater returns than US holdings based on valuations and economic data.

ECB policy is 2-3 years behind the Fed.

A recent commentary posted on the Greenwich-based MVS Management website and titled: The Coming Turnaround in Europe: How Central Bank Policy, Currency Moves, Emerging Market Follies and US Competitiveness Will Lead to Great Opportunity on the Continent; states that European assets are currently undervalued.

MVS' Olympitis believes a year after ECB head Draghi pledged to protect the Euro at all costs, the currency risk has dissipated, which combined with more focus on growth as opposed to austerity and continually improving economic numbers will lead to European out-performance.

The comments also state that valuations are much higher in the US than in Europe and MVS expects that gap to close significantly. A major factor in that assumption is that ECB policy is "2-3 years" behind the Fed and continued injections of liquidity will lead to a "weaker, more competitive Euro" and a buoying of asset prices much as we have seen in the US.

Additional evidence to support the thesis center around the Emerging Markets inability to diversify their economies and lower US energy costs that are being passed on to Europe.
