The index gauging economic confidence among investors rose to 4.2 from 1.7 the month before, exceeding expectations for a reading of 3.0.

Sentix said: "The Brexit shock only lasted a short while. Worries about an economic slowdown have not grown further."

The sub-index tracking expectations for the eurozone economy rose to 4.8 from -2.0 in July, but the current situation index fell to 3.8 in August from 5.5 - the lowest reading since last February.
