Our new CIO Special – German elections: life after Merkel – looks at the upcoming German elections and gives an overview of the key policy topics and possible coalitions.


Topics covered include:

  • With Angela Merkel not running for another term, the German federal elections will result not only in a new Bundestag but also in a new Chancellor.
  • Negotiating a coalition agreement may take some time after the election, given the often contradictory nature of the parties’ policy objectives.
  • Fixed income markets may be more sensitive to potential coalition partners’ views on spending and debt, at both a national and an EU level.
