During the call, Macan will be doing a deeper dive into how U.S presidential elections affect investments and your portfolio.
Every four years, uncertainty about the next president and their policies leads to further uncertainty. While you might expect that the president and their political party can move the market, it’s unclear to what degree that’s actually true. There have been 17 presidential elections since 1950, and each one has come with variables that uniquely affect the market.
