What the US general election means for your investments

10 min Read Published: 26 Aug 2020

One of the biggest risks for US equities, and to a certain extent global investment markets, is the outcome of the impending US election in November.

In this month’s Chatterbox I was asked the following question…

Hi Damien
With the US elections approaching have you done any research in the past on the impact of the election results on investments and how best to prepare a portfolio for either outcome. Should we expect “bigly” change or is it business as usual.

To which I responded:


I don’t think I have. I have done research looking at the impact of the UK election but not the US election. Perhaps this is something I can look to cover in a future research article or weekly newsletter.

Best wishes


So true to my word I thought it was a topic worth investigating.
