SEB: Investment Outlook: Small market movements after Brexit turmoil

The June 23 "Brexit" referendum in favour of a British exit from the European
Union was largely a political, not an economic event. Investors' risk
appetite has thus increased, and financial markets are showing strength
again.

The September issue of SEB's quarterlyInvestment Outlook
sees a number of factors that explain rising risk appetite in the wake of the
Brexit vote. Robust economic signals combined with continued aggressive
central bank policies are two examples. In addition, the outcome of the
latest quarterly report season was more in line with expectations than for a
long time.

"Offsetting these positive driving forces are continued sluggish economic
growth - despite central bank actions - and rising global debt. While second
quarter corporate earnings were in line with expectations, they remain
relatively flat," says Fredrik Öberg, Chief Investment Officer at SEB Private
Banking.

"We continue to advocate a somewhat cautious approach, even though our
forecasts for the coming year are mainly positive. Our approach remains a
balancing act between negative concerns and positive expectations."

This issue ofInvestment Outlook
notes that the state of the commodities sector has improved from the more or
less acute situation that prevailed early in 2016. Prices of "low-risk" fixed
income investments are record-high, which may be driving investors to take
risks in search of returns. Special theme articles in the report examine
European banks and the gaming industry.

investing. The report can be read in its entirety atwww.sebgroup.se.
