Our review of global markets and events over the month of April.

Market commentary

European equity markets advanced over the last three months, marking one of the best first quarter performances in years. On the macroeconomic front, the European Central Bank announced a large-scale expansion of its asset purchase programme, or quantitative easing (QE). In March, it began purchases of €60 billion of debt a month, including sovereign bonds, and will continue to do so until at least September 2016, in an effort to stimulate growth and raise inflation expectations in the eurozone. The policy was well received by equity markets and led to a significant weakening of the euro. Meanwhile, European economic readings, on the continent and in the UK, continued to show signs of progress, owing to a combination of lower oil prices, lower euro and lower interest rates. The Eurozone economy grew by 0.3% in Q4 2014, beating expectation and marking an improvement on the previous quarter. Elsewhere, the eurozone flash composite Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) stood at 54.1 in March, climbing for a fourth consecutive month to reach the highest level since May 2011. As European economic activity gathers further momentum, we continue to favour the cyclical sectors (those more responsive to economic phases) over the more defensive ones. At the end of March, industrials stood as the largest overweight sector relative to the MSCI Europe index benchmark, while consumer staples the biggest underweight sector.
