The impact of US elections on equities
What will Joe Biden's election mean for investors?

keywords

Getting the results from the US elections was a tortuous process, in large part due to the pandemic, and the use of postal votes, but not helped by president Trump's refusal to concede.

But the world got a result it could work with after several days, and came to understand that there would be a new, and very different president in the White House.

But what does this mean for investors into US equities? Will the choice of president have a material impact on the stocks that might do well? How will Joe Biden's handling of the pandemic affect the US economy?

All of these questions will be addressed in this guide, which is worth 30 minutes CPD.
