European shares edge higher, M&A boosts insurers
Friday, 6 December 2019 15:47 WIB | MARKET UPDATE |SahamEropaIndeks Stoxx Europe 600Stoxx 600

European shares inched higher on Friday as comments from U.S. President Donald Trump that trade talks with China were œmoving right along helped inject some calm into the markets after a rocky week.

The pan-European STOXX 600 index rose 0.3% by 08:19 GMT, with banks, technology firms and retail companies leading the gains.

M&A activity boosted insurers after Phoenix Group Holdings Plc said it would buy the British insurance unit of Swiss Re in a cash-and-shares deal worth 3.2 billion pounds ($4.1 billion). Swiss Re AG shares rose 2.8%, while Phoenix Group was up 1.6%.

Despite Friday's gains, the STOXX 600 was on track to post its biggest weekly decline in two months after conflicting headlines on trade and weak euro zone economic indicators made for a volatile trading session.
