State Street Investor Confidence Index102.1 103.0 107.4 

Global institutional investors continued to regain confidence and further increased their holdings of equities in February, according to State Street, whose Investor Confidence Index based on actual portfolio holdings of their institutional clients rose to 107.4, up 4.4 points from January's upwardly revised reading of 103.00. The increase in global appetite for equities was driven by renewed risk appetite in the North American component, which rose 6.1 points to 104.4 and a 7.8 point jump to 108.5 in the Asian component. But the sub-index for Europe bucked the global trend and muffled the overall increase by posting a large decline of 12.9 points to 100.6.

The State Street Investor Confidence Index measures confidence by looking at actual levels of risk in investment portfolios. This is not an attitude survey. The State Street Investor Confidence Index measures confidence directly by assessing the changes in investor holdings of equities. The more of their portfolio that institutional investors are willing to invest in equities, the greater their confidence. The report's main index is global and is based on activity in 45 countries. The report tracks more than 22 million transactions annually. There are three published components: North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific. The separate weightings of the three components vary month to month based on investment activity and are not published. Also included in the global index, but also not published, is activity in South America and the Middle East.  Why Investors Care
