European stocks closed higher Tuesday, as investors monitored global trade developments, fresh earnings reports and another potentially decisive Brexit vote.

The pan-European Stoxx 600 index closed up 0.8 percent to 357.23, with most sectors and major bourses in positive territory.

Europe's utilities and household goods were among the top performers, with each sector up more than 1 percent as investors flocked to stocks considered safe at times of economic uncertainty.

Looking at individual stocks, wind turbine maker Siemens Gamesa was among the top performers Tuesday following the release of its financials. The firm, formed by a merger between Spain's Gamesa and Germany's Siemens, reported net profit amounting to 18 million euros ($21 million), versus a 35 million euro loss the previous year. Shares rose over 13 percent.
