Update on quant signals for EU equity sectors and styles

We present an update of our proprietary equity valuation tool, based on quant models, which provides indications of over- or undervaluation for different sectors and styles of European equities. We add tables showing the past recovery after the huge drawdown caused by the Lehman crisis, for sectors and styles.
