Italy is again interesting for investors
Italy has been back on the radar of global investors for some time now. At least since the maximum aid plan for the next generation of the European Union – of which Rome is the largest beneficiary in Europe – and the arrival of Mario Draghi at the head of the country has created the conditions necessary to imagine a different path from the path of stagnation and decline. Many observers seemed to have condemned her without appeal. The surprising growth achieved in the past two years, 6.7% in 2021, and 3.9% this year, according to Statistic, despite the impact of the energy crisis – beyond the increases in GDP achieved by Germany, 2.6% and 1.6% respectively – is caught the attention of quite a few analysts. Now that rate hikes have overwhelmed the bond markets and returned value to bonds, even BTP bonds are becoming more attractive in the eyes of many large investors.
on the other side, Italy is the fourth most represented country in the global government bond baskets, after the United States, Japan and France: Our bonds alone are worth 6.4% of the universe.
