Outlook 2016: Global Economy

Global growth holds up in 2016, but does not accelerate. With the US poised to hike interest rates, the rest of the world waits anxiously. Normalization of monetary policy poses economic risks, but so does keeping it too loose for too long.

Special

Negatieve rente? De ene rente is de andere niet (Dutch)

Het ECB beleid leidt tot lage en soms negatieve rentes in geldmarkten, op staatsleningen en op sommige bancaire producten. In het bankwezen staat de rentemarge onder druk; spaarrentes kunnen slechts beperkt omlaag, terwijl leenrentes verder dalen.

Macroeconomic developments in Europe

We expect growth in Europe to accelerate gradually, although the economy has far from fully recovered from the Global Financial Crisis. Substantial deterioration in the Greek situation and/or the geopolitical conflicts remain downside risks.
