Highlights
Global institutional investors continued to decrease purchases of equities in June, according to State Street, whose investor Confidence Index based on actual portfolio holdings of their institutional clients fell to 101.7, down 2.1 points from May's upwardly revised reading of 103.8. The decline was driven by a 10.8 drop in risk appetite for European equities to 90.8, aided by a decrease of 0.8 points to 102.6 in the Asian component. The North American component managed to buck the global trend, rising 0.8 points to 105.7. State Street noted that escalating trade tensions across the globe, increasing protectionism and diverging monetary policies led to more caution by institutional investors during the month. Institutional investors stepped up their reduction of equity holdings in Europe, where political turmoil, including a populist government in Italy and the possibility of a more fragile coalition in Germany, continued to take a toll on 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
