U.S. 2020 Elections: A Lot Is At Stake For Markets

Elections always matter and this year's will be no exception, as the outcome will have a major impact on the U.S. economy and capital markets. MRB Global Strategist Peter Perkins will examine the key factors that will likely determine who will be the next president and which party will control the House and Senate, focusing most closely on the all-important swing states. He will also discuss how the significant policy differences between the two parties may affect the overall equity market and specific sectors, including energy, financials, health care and technology, and put them into the broader domestic and global economic context.
