As we face into another year of political uncertainty, Stephanie Kelly, Senior Political Economist at Aberdeen Standard Investments Research Institute, will discuss how investors can make sense of the issues across the developed world that are top of mind for investors. Political fragmentation and polarisation has driven policy uncertainty ever higher in recent years.
During this webinar, from our Practitoner Series, Stephanie suggests this will be reflected again this year in the global political and economic ramifications of the 2020 U.S. elections, the latest on Brexit and the deeply disruptive U.S.-China trade war. So what can we do as investors? A clear framework for assessing political risk drivers, combined with in-depth scenario analysis can help investors to find signal in the noise and provide visibility about where the distribution of risks lie to portfolios in a world where political risks are unlikely to abate.
