LGT investor survey – Swiss investors: home market oriented and satisfied with their bank and relationship manager

High-net-worth Swiss investors are very satisfied with their bank, their relationship manager and their financial center. Their portfolios have remained largely unchanged for several years. Swiss investors are also satisfied with their returns. Digitalization, just like sustainability, is becoming an increasingly important topic. These are just a few findings from this year’s LGT Private Banking Report. The report provides insights into the world of high-net-worth investors from Switzerland, Austria and Germany. In addition to investor behavior, the study this year also focuses in particular on the confidence of high-net-worth private banking clients in institutions, their assessment of domestic and foreign financial centers as well as their attitudes toward investor protection, digitalization and sustainability.

LGT Navigator: Trade war tensions cloud investors' sentiment once again

The US government has announced punitive tariffs of 25% on more than 1,100 Chinese products worth USD 50bn, dampening investor sentiment. At the same time, China and the EU imposed retaliatory duties on US goods. A worsening of the trading conflict will cause further unrest in the new trading week. Following the rate decisions of the Fed, ECB and BoJ, this week's focus will be on the monetary policy announcements of the Bank of England and the Swiss National Bank (SNB) on Thursday.

The ECB's cautious bias toward an interest rate turnaround, despite the announcement to end its billion-dollar bond purchase program probably at the end of this year, weakened the euro significantly. The ECB maintained its key interest rate at a record low and remained extremely cautious in its communication. At the same time, the Bank of Japan also left its key interest rates unchanged and even lowered its inflation expectations.

LGT Navigator: Fed mirrors solid economic path

The Federal Reserve (Fed) raised its benchmark interest rate by a quarter of a percentage point to a range of 1.75% to 2%, the second hike this year. Besides the rate hike, a majority of policy makers said they now expect a total of four interest rate increases in 2018. This reflects an economy that is getting stronger as unemployment reached 3.8%, the lowest since 2000, and inflation is creeping higher. On this backdrop, the Fed is set to continue to raise rates gradually to keep the economy from overheating.
