Investment Markets Overview – w/e 6 September 2013

Whilst the G20, a group of twenty Finance Ministers and Central Bank Governors representing 80% of gross world product, was established in 1999, the G20 Leaders Summit only held its first gathering in 2008, in response to the 2007 financial crisis. Whilst it suited the “big boys,” better known as the G7 to include the other 13, as they needed the financial commitment the others could bring to the party, they no doubt had second thoughts at this week’s annual summit, held in St Petersburg, Russia. Although the world leaders discussed threats to the global economy, more below, the shadow of Syria, or more to the point President Obama’s proposed military strike on Syria, dominated the summit. If Obama thought that he could unite the G20 behind his agenda he was sorely disappointed as they split in what appears to have been an acrimonious manner, with the UK, France, Turkey, Canada and Saudi Arabia supportive of a punitive strike, whilst Italy, Germany, India and most of the other emerging economies joining Russia and China in insisting they wont support military intervention without United Nations Security Council approval.
