Spotlight: European elections

The future of the Eurozone is heavily dependent on the results of the coming elections


Key points

  • Elections in the Netherlands, France and Germany look highly uncertain and could interfere with the ongoing recovery scenario in place. 
     
  • The future of the Eurozone is heavily dependent on the results of these elections, particularly from the outcome of the election in France. 
     
  • European markets have not priced the extreme scenario of a “Frexit” – France leaving the Eurozone. 
     
  • Impacts from politics on European assets could be asymmetrical: potential heavy losses in case of extreme political scenario versus a modest rebound in case of a “pro-European” outcome from the elections.
