Market Outlook

In November, consumer confidence improved slightly but remained historically low as households continue to be careful with spending. The Belgian economy will likely decelerate compared to last year and, according to a recent report by the Federation of Enterprises in Belgium, the terrorist attacks have played a significant role in hampering growth in several key sectors.
