It wasn’t long ago that we published our Q1 Market Update, but since then there’s been a lot happening in both the markets & in the world in general.
Today Donald Trump leaves the White House for the last time as Joe Biden is sworn in as US president at the official inauguration ceremony.
Against a backdrop of civil unrest, there are many questions being asked about what today means for markets. As you can see from the chart below, markets have always recovered on the back of newly elected US Presidents as well as events such as the Global Credit Crisis of 2007 and the COVID-19 Pandemic before rallying and going on to reach new highs.
Changes in political leadership are just one of an almost infinite number of things that influence stock markets, many of which are uncertain. That’s why we don’t try to predict what they’ll do next.
Instead we believe having a diversified portfolio, investing across a broad range of asset classes, regions and industries, is the best way to prepare for whatever the markets have in store.
It doesn’t guarantee your portfolio will be immune from every short-term shock, but over the long-term, it should allow you to capture market gains in the good times, and provide some protection if things turn sour.
