World financials ETF

During and shortly after the credit crisis this financial market sector was facing serious challenges but these difficult times are behind them. Today the financials are on a path of swift and solid recovery so you may anticipate better results and higher prices.

On the other hand, not all danger has disappeared. Although things have definitely improved the sector still is on weaker knees than some decades ago.

Interest rates have been extremely low for the last couple of years and they have gotten enormous support from central banks. The big question remains what will happen when interest rates go up and the safeguarding of central banks will come to a halt.
