It goes without saying that you will only find retail companies in this retail ETF. Of course a retail ETF is very depended on consumers. Consumer confidence must be high and the same goes for purchasing power.
As a consequence high employment figures and rising wages are good for this retail ETF. Europe however still has not absorbed the crisis that begun in 2008 which is still hampering consumer spending.
In my opinion this retail ETF has a solid growth path ahead of it when the European economy will grow. Of course you will find only European companies in this retail ETF.
