Russia among Europes top performing stock markets in 2019

13 Jan, 2020 08:16

While last year was marked by political and economic uncertainty across the world, Greece, Russia and Italy have been Europe’s top performing stock markets.

Some investors dismissed these markets as “too dangerous, too politically unstable, too reliant on commodities, too weak economically or a combination of all four,” Russ Mould, investment director at AJ Bell, a UK investment platform, said in a note to clients seen by CNBC.“But this just goes to show that buying what is comfortable is rarely the route to big profits,” he added.

According to economists, Greece, which was once Europe’s sick man, seems to have entered a new chapter. The country’s major index rose 43 percent in 2019, making it the top performer in Europe and across the world.
