In 2019, almost all regional markets recorded double-digit growth of their respective main index, which can be seen in the table above. Such a performance raises a couple of question such as:

  • Is such a performance of regional indices an outlier?
  • How often did the indices observe similar performance?
  • Are we going to observe the continuation of the positive sentiment in the region?

To answer the first two questions we decided to present you with a graphical overview of the index performance throughout time. The following graphs show yearly return of each index on a spectrum from >-20% to >+20%.
