Eurozone banks, gold, infrastructure among Top 10 reads of 2011

Goldman Sachs’ list of banks most exposed to the sovereign debt of Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece and Spain topped the list of most read articles on InvestmentEurope through 2011.

Indeed, if there is an over-riding theme to the articles most sought after by InvestmentEurope‘s readers it is articles about Europe’s ongoing debt and currency crises.

Readers also showed themselves interested in new products, particularly around themes of infrastructure and Asian currency denominated debt, and movement of professionals around the industry.

As gold hit an all time dollar high it was no surprise to find an article about the precious metal on the list. Ditto, corporate activity has been followed; the industry faces a number of pressure points around product and regulatory costs, and there is ongoing speculation about which businesses may be bought and sold going forward.

And there is always a certain level of excitement around identifying the ultra high net worth individual.
