LONDON (Reuters) - BlackRock (NYSE:BLK)'s Investment Institute said on Tuesday it was "warming up" to European assets following what it called the eurozone's "impressive" efforts to tackle the coronavirus.

The research arm of the world's biggest fund manager said two factors would support Europe's economy and financial markets in the coming months.

Success in restricting the spread of COVID-19 and signs that shopping and travel activity was rebounding meant: "we could see the pace of recovery in the second half outpacing other regions, including the United States".

It said the new 750-billion-euro European recovery plan was a "crucial turning point" too and will, for the first time, create a jointly issued European 'safe' asset of a meaningful size.

"As a result we maintain our overweight in European peripheral government bonds and are considering an upgrade to European equities," the BII's top strategists said in a weekly report.
