Head of Equity Strategy / Saxo Bank
By Peter Garnry
It would have been another good week for our top equity picks portfolio in emerging markets if it has not been for National Bank of Greece (NBG) declining 9.7 percent. NBG's sharp decline follows other European peripheral banks that were also hard hit. Especially the Italian banks have had a couple of bad weeks. The portfolio was down 27 basis points for the past week compared the MSCI Emerging Market Index which rose 180 basis points.
