Generali Investments Europe expects European bonds rebound

Generali Investments Europe (GIE) has stated in a recent note that the quantitative easing program launched by the ECB will “set the tone for financial markets for quite some time to go.”

GIE expects risky assets to rally and bond yields to remain extremely depressed. Klaus Wiener, chief economist at GIE, commented: “Core government bond yields will stay extremely depressed. 10-year bunds are now trading at 0.34% but may fall even more when the ECB starts actually buying government bonds on 1 March.”

“With core yields so low, investors will be pushed into riskier assets. Finally, euro area stocks will rally with double-digit total returns now likely both this year and next.”
