Quarterly Report Q4-2020
REECOX Euro Score showing sustained upward trend

Dear readers,

when we look back at the year 2020, it is clear that it was marked in particular by the coronavirus pandemic and its effects. Society and almost all industries were faced with significant challenges to best minimise the risk of infection while maintaining economic activities to the greatest extent possible. This was also reflected in the Euro Score: In the first and second quarters, it suffered substantial losses. In the middle of the year, an initial recovery was observed in all countries monitored, which also continued in the fourth quarter – albeit to a lesser extent. This recovery was largely driven by developments in the stock and real estate indices. A clear stabilisation was observed in all countries monitored. Overall, however, only the REECOX Germany was able to show a positive development of 2.2 % in 2020. The other countries have not yet returned to the pre-crisis levels. Increasing vaccination coverage will now be of particular importance for the further recovery, so that the spread of the virus can be contained in the long term.

Kind regards,


Your Andreas Rehfus

REECOX Euro Score showing sustained upward trend

The recovery trends recorded for the Euro Score in the third quarter continued in the final quarter. Following a decline in October (-1.4 %), the months of November and December showed positive trends again, with increases of 1.3 % and 2.4 % respectively. It achieved 227 points at the end of the year, bringing it closer to the pre-crisis level. Nevertheless, the result for 2020 as a whole, a year dominated by the coronavirus pandemic, remains subdued overall at -3.0 % due to significant price declines in the spring.

REECOX Germany generates the only positive annual result

A look at the individual indicators illustrates that the REECOX was able to build on the positive development of the previous quarter in all monitored countries in the fourth quarter. However, these were comparatively moderate increases of no more than 3.6 % (REECOX Netherlands). Over the year as a whole, there is one clear winner: the REECOX Germany was the only index to achieve a positive annual result, rising 2.2 % to 311 points. All other countries suffered losses, some of them substantial. The highest decline was recorded in France (-8.2 % to 219.8 points), while the fall was lowest in Spain at -4.8 % to its current level of 169 points.
