Highlights
The State Street Investor Confidence Index rose 7.9 points in July to 108.9, driven by a 10.0 point increase in the North American component to 112.1. Dragging down the overall index were the components for Europe, down 4.3 points to 94.2, and Asia, down 1.3 points to 96.0. Continued improvements in global economic growth have reignited the risk appetite of institutional investors, as strong earnings growth expectations and optimism based on an improving economic outlook have taken precedence over the rising anticipation of central bank balance sheet reductions and a more hawkish tone, according to State Street. But Europe remains risk-off territory, State Street noted, despite strong corporate data and fading political headwinds. In Asia, concerns about the Trump administration's global trade policies have taken a toll on institutional investor confidence.

Definition
The State Street Investor Confidence Index measures confidence by looking at actual levels of risk in investment portfolios. This is not an attitude survey. The State Street Investor Confidence Index measures confidence directly by assessing the changes in investor holdings of equities. The more of their portfolio that institutional investors are willing to invest in equities, the greater their confidence. The report's main index is global and is based on activity in 45 countries. The report tracks more than 22 million transactions annually. There are three published components: North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific. The separate weightings of the three components vary month to month based on investment activity and are not published. Also included in the global index, but also not published, is activity in South America and the Middle East.  Why Investors Care
