Achieving this turnaround will depend on stepping up efforts to heal the fi nancial sector, while continuing to support demand with monetary and fi scal easing.

  • It is unclear whether MMMFs, as currently structured, are really pass-through entities. Fund investors see no fluctuations in their share values based on changing interest rates or credit spreads. When fund losses materialize, it is usually the sponsors rather than investors who absorb them. And in the only recent example of investors being required to absorb a loss, a run was triggered on other funds that may have significantly impacted the broader economy absent government intervention. ...

  • Our results based on 1’472 U.S. open-end equity funds between 1975 and 2002 clearly show that the impact of luck on performance is substantial. First, our estimators of the number of funds with differential, positive and negative performance is much lower than those obtained with the standard approach. It implies that our judgement on performance across the different investment categories can substantially differ from the one implied by the standard approach. Second, we find that luck has a stronger impact on the performance of the best rather than the worst funds....

  • The very strong growth of collateralised structured operations in the context of synthetic ETFs and ETF-based securities lending suggests that there are significant benefits for authorities and ETF market participants alike in improving their understanding of the risks attached, and the ways in which they can be mitigated. The current protracted period of low interest rates provides incentives for re-leveraging in non-standard market segments, which may lead to a build up of financial vulnerabilities, especially as the process of financial repair is not complete.

  • In Europe, economic sentiment resumed its decline, dropping significantly in the summer months. After stagnation in the first quarter of 2012, the EU and euro-area economies contracted in the second quarter reflecting a decrease in domestic demand and lower net export growth. Unemployment increased further, in particular in the countries that were hardest hit by the sovereign- debt crisis. Available hard data and leading indicators point to a weak second half of the year. For 2012 as a whole, GDP is now expected to contract by ¼% in the EU and almost ½% in the euro area. ...

  • Despite this, there is little evidence that actual or expected future sales significantly affected asset prices. Graph 5 (centre and right-hand panels) shows time series of price quotes for selected high-spread securitised assets, distressed bonds and leveraged loans. True, the price of US leveraged loans fell and spreads on some securitised assets rose after the EBA capital target announcement, consistent with the deleveraging implications of this news.

The EU economy has dipped back into contraction in the second quarter with further weakness expected in the second half of the year. Unemployment has risen and cross-country divergences have widened.

  • Businesses can invest in modernizing equipment, but the impact of further declines in interest rates is likely to be limited. There is a large body of research that finds that investment is not very responsive to interest rates. 8 Furthermore, the rate of growth of equipment and software investment is already quite rapid, with growth averaging 19.9 percent from third quarter of 2009 to the second quarter of 2010. It does not seem likely that lower interest rates will increase this rate substantially, especially in a context where demand is contracting due to budget cuts.
