Economic recovery or stall?

Return to normal life or Covid episode 4 or 5? Will Europe and the rest of the world experience the same “back to school”? What role for the companies and intermediaries that we represent?

We all tried to make the month of August as restful as possible, as disconnected from Covid as we could, despite the fires, sudden travel restrictions or limitations on our behaviour. Between the return of the still non-European masks and the time needed to take into account a second dose of vaccine that is barely a little more European, we tried to go to restaurants or visit tourist sites, often closer to us than usual, sometimes anyway, having to abandon in the car or in the street, one of us, whose health pass was not yet valid.

We therefore left it in this car that is not yet electric, but which will soon be, while wondering if it is really true that with heavy batteries, made of rare and distant materials, which will no longer allow us to cross Member States in a single journey, the ecological revival of our continent will be well assured.

We are not yet quite ashamed of having devices that run on petroleum, nor yet quite ashamed of eating meat or fruits that travel, just because we love them.

Yet we feel that it will come, just like daring to try to have a vehicle in the city, since it will be reserved for the countryside - or having an old house, with its wooden windows, which will surely be a scandal, something that is already the case when burning the dead leaves of your own trees in your garden...



The European Federation of Financial Advisers and Financial Intermediaries (FECIF) was chartered in June 1999 for the defence and promotion of the role of financial advisers and intermediaries in Europe.

FECIF, the only body representing European financial advisers and intermediaries, it is based in Brussels, the heart of Europe.
