Highlights
Global institutional investor appetite for equities continued to wane in November, albeit at a slower pace, according to State Street, whose Investor Confidence Index based on actual portfolio holdings of their institutional clients decreased by 1.0 point from October's revised reading of 98.1. The minor decline in global sentiment was driven by a steep drop of 12.0 points in the European component to 81.0. The decline in Europe was largely offset, however, by an 3.7 point increase in the North American component to 102.6 and a 1.0 point rise to 97.5 in the sub-index for Asia.

The November data shows global risk appetites remaining subdued and tilted toward risk aversion given that institutional investors were net sellers of equities during the month by a small margin. While tax reform prospects in the U.S. boosted investor confidence in the U.S., political uncertainty and tighter monetary conditions dragged down sentiment in Europe, and sentiment for equity investments in Asia remained cautious amid rising concerns about Chinese debt.

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
