With Mr. Macron representing the status quo, BlackRock Investment Institute said in a post-election note, "we could see yields on French government bonds edging down versus German bunds and French stocks ticking up. Peripheral European bonds like Italy's and Spain's as well as the euro could post modest gains on the prospect for deeper European integration."
Mr. Macron, the first French president to be re-elected in 20 years is "committed to deepening EU integration" and has pushed for more flexible European fiscal rules and more common European Union investment funds, BlackRock Investment Institute said.
His re-election with 58.5% of the vote "is overall quite positive," said Lale Akoner, senior market strategist at BNY Mellon Investment Management.
"Some sectors will be boosted more than others. He is very much into this idea of nuclear energy and that it will drive new growth," particularly as Europeans move toward renewable energy and away from energy dependence on Russia, Ms. Akoner said in an interview.
"This geopolitical environment is very, very supportive of Macron's agenda," Ms. Akoner said. "From an environmental point of view, he would minimize the hit to GDP."
His longer-term priorities, including corporate tax changes and raising the national retirement age, will be less certain if his party does not have a strong showing in legislative elections this summer, she said.
