Highlights
Global institutional investor appetite for equities continued to wane in September, according to State Street. The State Street Investor Confidence Index fell 2.4 points from August to 104.4, driven by a 6.3 point drop in the North American component to 105.6. The decline was buffered by an increase in the European component by 4.7 points to 93.7 along with a 3.7 point rise in the Asian sub-index to 102.8.

The month's sentiment shifts shows risk appetites in the global regions converging, with Europe still the most risk averse though reviving and Asia moving above the neutral level into net buyer mode, both on the back of improved economic conditions. While the appetite for equities still remains strongest in North America, it is curbed by geopolitical concerns and the possible economic drag of higher interest rates following the Fed's decision to trim its $4.5 trillion portfolio.

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
