ETF Heatmap: Gauging European ETF Performance

ETF Database

Since the financial crisis of 2008, the global economy has faced several significant headwinds. Though the U.S. has showed signs of economic progress–as exemplified by the Fed’s decision to begin tapering–the eurozone continues to recover from its debt-crisis. In 2013, however, the eurozone finally managed to log in its first positive GDP reading after 18 months of contraction, giving investors glimmers of hope for Europe’s ability to bounce back.

Analysts have now become increasingly bullish on European equities; according to the IMF, the euro-area is expected to grow 2.5% this year, and 2.7% in 2015. For a better perspective of Europe’s current economic position, we take a look at how each country fared in recent years, highlighting the 1-, 3-, and trailing 5-year performances of the single-country European ETFs (data as of January 17, 2013). For a full list of ETFs used in the heatmaps, see below charts [see Macro Report: 2014's Fastest Growing Economies].
