  1. UBS Global Wealth Management’s Chief Investment Office (CIO) uses econometric tools, usually applied to assess investment opportunities, to predict the winner of this year’s football World Cup. Simulations indicate no country has higher odds of winning the tournament than Germany, leading the table with a likelihood of 24 percent. Brazil and Spain also stand a good chance of lifting the trophy, with chances of 19.8 and 16.1 percent respectively. Host nation Russia will start in the Cup’s weakest group and is expected to progress to the round of 16, where it is likely to lose against Spain or Portugal. Economically, Russia’s estimated spending on the tournament of 0.7 percent of GDP is not expected to boost the nation’s economy in a significant way. However, it might generate greater economic benefits compared with hosts in more developed economies such as Spain, Italy or France.
