What Will The US Elections Mean For The Markets and Investing?

Political uncertainty fueled by the Donald Trump vs. Hillary Clinton headlines dominating the news can affect investor confidence levels and lead to greater volatility. 

Is it all noise?  According to Goldman Sachs’ Kensho market statistics, in the month of September the broad US stock market (S&P 500) tends to be weaker historically, falling -0.98% on average.  However, during an Election Year, the month of September tends to have a slightly POSITIVE return of +0.16%… 

So don’t let the fear and uncertainty of the US elections hold you back from moving forward financially.

To further make sense of it all, the Smart Risk team is hosting a panel of  three industry masterminds on November 2, 2016 from 5pm – 7pm who will offer a wealth of knowledge, insight and strategies in alignment with the Smart Risk principles on how to invest amidst the market uncertainty.  The expert panel will challenge the status quo herd mentality, and provide guests with resourceful strategies amidst the market volatility.
