The focus in Europe is now on the timing and strategy for lockdown reversals. On this week's podcast, Derek Halpenny, Head of Research for Global Markets EMEA and International Securities, gives an overview of the two factors which will impact this decision making: the capacity of state healthcare systems and the extent of testing for COVID-19.

Germany, Switzerland and Austria are leading the way, but the UK is trailing behind on both these fronts.

Listen for Derek's thoughts on the timeline for these reversals and the current state of the markets.
