Global Opportunity Index: A European Experience
The Global Opportunity Index (GOI) assesses the attractiveness of potential investment opportunities in key countries. This year’s focus on recent developments in Europe builds on our past research examining capital flows and financial regulation in the region.
- Europe remains a top performing region in the GOI with the U.K, Switzerland, Norway, and Sweden in the top 10 and more than half of the top 25 countries of the GOI are located in Europe.
- The implementation of various reforms has played an important role for the countries that have noticeably improved this year.
- Financial services—specifically, access to capital—remain an important driver of European performance relative to the rest of the world.
