2020 has seen an unprecedented amount of turmoil, and yet arguably, the most important market event of the year is still to come: the 2020 US election. Covid-19, geopolitical tensions, stimulus, climate change are all on the ballot in November, along with the choice of President. So, how do you position yourself and your clients for the post-election market?

Pierce, CEO of ETF, Index and Cash Investment Strategies, BNY Mellon Investment Management, will provide both sides of the political debate from BNY Mellon’s dual Directors of Government Affairs, along with opinion as to what the market implications may be of either outcome, and what that could mean for investment portfolios.
