Global investor confidence rose by seven points from a revised May reading of 108.5 to reach115.5 in June, according to the State Street Investor Confidence Index.

Confidence was up most strongly in Europe, where the benchmark rose 9.1 points to 95.0.

Confidence also rose robustly among North American investors, climbing 6.2 points from 107.4 to 113.6.

In Asia, risk appetite was down slightly, falling 1.3 points to 92.1 from May’s revised reading of 93.4.

The changes from the prior-month numbers for both the Global Index and the North American Index were somewhat larger than usual due to the impact of the Memorial Day holiday on reporting in May.

The State Street Investor Confidence Index measures investor confidence on a quantitative basis by analyzing the actual buying and selling decisions of institutional investors. The more of their portfolio that institutional investors are willing to devote to equities, the greater their risk appetite or confidence.

‘June marks the third consecutive month that the Global Index has remained above the neutral level of 100, the level above which institutional investors are increasing their allocations to risky assets,’ says Ken Froot, co-developer of the index.
