SPDR ETFs comments on Dutch General Election result


Commenting on the Dutch General Election result, Antoine Lesné (pictured), EMEA head of ETF strategy at SPDR ETFs, part of State Street Global Advisors, says: “The VVD lead had started to gain momentum in the few days leading to the election. While polls for the traditional Christian Democrats (CDA) had slipped a bit, the approvals of the ‘populist’ anti-Euro Party for Freedom (PVV) were also losing steam. With the VVD the largest party, it may be easier to build a governing coalition with four or five parties and gain a 76 seat majority.

“The PVV may likely remain the opposition party. Meanwhile French Government Bond (OATs Obligations Assimilables du Trésor) spreads may tighten a bit as the Dutch elections have been eagerly awaited to serve as a potential temperature check for French elections. One obstacle has been passed and attention now focuses on the French elections and the concerns about the growing popularity of the National Front of Marine Le Pen.”
