In order to adapt to the evolution of the pandemic, the asset buyback programs of the ECB “can be dynamically modified. Therefore, they will probably remain the key instruments for changing our monetary policy,” she said.

The BioNTech SE (BNTX) and Pfizer Inc (PFE) partnership agreement is focused on the extensive range of vaccines to be produced in Europe, including contracts already signed with AstraZeneca Plc (AZN) (up 2.5%), Sanofi-GSK and Janssen Pharmaceutica, and fruitful exploratory negotiations with CureVac and Moderna. This diversified vaccine portfolio will allow Europe to be well prepared for vaccination once it has been proven that vaccines are safe and reliable.
