The Netherlands, which is the country of the Dutch, does not have a big economy. In 2022, the country had a nominal GDP of just over $1 trillion and a population of 17.7 million.

The Dutch economy is also not expected to grow very quickly. According to the OECD, the Dutch economy in June 2022, the Dutch economy is expected to grow by 2.9% in 2022 and 1.1% in 2023. Inflation will also remain high at 9.2% on average before fall back to 4.8% in 2023 according to estimates. Although private consumption should continue to support growth, rising costs could nevertheless be a drag on this growth.

Given that the US Federal Reserve has raised interest rates further since June and the central bank may do so in the future, the Dutch economy could potentially slow more than expected. Rising interest rates in the United States could also affect demand and growth in other countries that trade with the United States.

Although the Dutch economy is not the largest in the world, the country is home to two of the world’s leading technology giants, ASML Holding NV (NASDAQ:ASML) and Airbus. The country also includes many other smaller companies such as Exor which are also worth over $10 billion. Since the Netherlands is based in the European Union, many companies headquartered there do business across the continent and, in many cases, the world as well.

For Europe, the OECD said in June that it expects EA and EU real GDP to grow by 2.6% in 2022 and 1.6% in 2023.

Regarding the global economy, the IMF said in October that it expects growth of 3.2% for 2022 and 2.9% for 2023. The IMF also said that it estimated that the countries which represent 1/3 of the world economy would experience at least two consecutive quarters. of economic contraction this year or next.

Given the current market volatility, it might make sense for investors to have a well-diversified portfolio among many different stocks in many different sectors.

“ING Groep is a commercial bank based in the Netherlands. ING’s core business is in the Benelux and Germany, but the bank also operates in several other European markets primarily using a fintech strategy. This is nothing new for ING. In fact, the bank has been operating direct banking services for decades. However, the share price has suffered in recent years, along with the share prices of other European banks, from increased regulation and financial repression. This year, ING is recovering like most banks from the COVID-related provisions charged to the P&L in 2020. But unlike other banks, ING started 2021 with an overcapitalized balance sheet and a new CEO. Under CEO Steven van Rijswijk, ING has taken steps to exit underperforming businesses, which will have a positive impact on both earnings and the bank’s capital position. In addition, base profits increase and the business continues to generate capital. During the quarter, ING announced both a resumption of dividend payments and a new share buyback program. The market is just beginning to realize the quality and value of this company. Even after the stock price rose 12% in the quarter and rose more than 66% year-to-date, stocks are still trading unfairly below their book value.”
