Commenting on the initial results of the 2020 US elections, Azhar Hussain, head of global credit at Royal London Asset Management said:
“We are looking at a closer presidential and senate election than forecast, with a significant risk of litigation which could delay the results. Whilst uncertainty isn’t ideal for any risk markets, it is clear that monetary policy will continue to underpin the credit markets. We now expect fiscal stimulus to be delayed but there is likely to be no radical change even if the presidency changes hands, with an unchanged or finely balanced Senate.”
