    IFR Review of the Year 2014

    In many ways 2014 was a bumper year for the investment banking industry.

    IFR Americas Review of the Year 2014

    They say in Hollywood that nothing dates faster than visions of the future. Those old sci-fi movies look so cheesy now because reality always outpaces our ability to predict it. And predictions for how 2014 would turn out look, in retrospect, pretty outdated indeed.

    The bigger the better – in everything. Freddie Mercury, the late lead singer of Queen, wasn’t alone in judging the world and its wares solely on the merit of size. Take bond investors. When the Federal Reserve announced its intention to begin tapering its quantitative easing programme last May, expectations were of an inexorable rise in US yields.

    IFR Germany Special Report 2014

    As a solo performer, Germany has few rivals and many fans, striking all the right notes and rising sublimely above Europe’s discord as the DAX posts all-time highs, data show a growing economy, and unemployment dips to the lowest rate since unification.

    IFR SSA Special Report 2014

    The euro crisis is over. At least, that’s what the market appears to believe.

    IFR Emerging Europe and Turkey Special Report 2014

    At cruising altitude; turbulence ahead?: This report reaches you at a time when Emerging Europe and Turkey could be stuck on the tarmac.
