The US Election - Implications for investors

Please click the link below to view Shane Oliver's views on the implication for investors from the upcoming US election.

Key points raised are:

  • The run up to the US election on 3rd November has the potential to see increased share market volatility if it looks increasingly likely Biden will win and if Trump ramps up tensions with China in response
  • However this is likely to be short lived as there is no reason to expect a weaker economy and hense share market under a Biden presidency
  • Historically share have performed better under Deomcrat than Republican presidents.
