LONDON (Reuters) – Top investment managers expect further monetary easing from the European Central Bank in 2014 to support the euro zone economy at a time when the Federal Reserve is set to withdraw stimulus in the United States.

LONDON (Reuters) – A recovery in business spending and transparency in Europe’s bank balance sheets would help the region’s equities outperform the United States in 2014, Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management says.
