Cheering for Croatia

By John Roe

Putting football rivalries aside, we think Croatia has a lot going for it.



We expect Croatia to be a clear winner from the EU Recovery Fund, and the country could join the euro as soon as mid-2022, with all the associated support that brings.

I discussed this and more in a recent interview on Bloomberg TV.

With failed football dreams behind him, John applies the same level of enthusiasm to investing and how to improve outcomes by battling behavioural biases. He leads on oil research, but also gets involved in a wide range of macro topics. That love of variety also explains his craft beer fascination. Hard to shut up, he’s a regular guest on Bloomberg, a conference speaker and an LGIM Director. His analytical thinking benefits from being an Actuary with an economics degree and having previously worked as a strategist at RBS.
