Webinar Recording | After the Dust Settles: Post-Election & Capital Markets Update
This year has been a tumultuous one for capital markets and the economy. The COVID-19 pandemic has led to lockdowns, a surge in unemployment, a market crash, and an economic downturn; to top it all off, it was an election year. The worst is hopefully behind us, but there are still a number of unknowns as we head into 2021 — and they could impact your investment portfolio and your financial strategy for the future.
On November 16th, Brad Pineault, CFA® at Fidelity Institutional Asset Management joined us for a discussion about the state of capital markets, the 2020 election, and more, including:
Why we expect a continued economic recovery
The good news (and not-so-good news) about COVID-19
What the post-election political landscape means for future financial support
Important portfolio considerations for managing risk and achieving your investment goals
