While the world worries about coronavirus, there is another decade-defining event going on – the US election.
Will Donald Trump win a second term as US President and have the world dance to his tune for four more years, or will Joe Biden take charge – and what on earth would that mean for people?
There is less than a month to go until the US election and under normal circumstances you would expect all the focus of stock market commentators to be on that.
It’s not normal circumstances though. The second wave of coronavirus and renewed lockdowns have the world’s attention and the election, if not a sideshow, is definitely not as centre stage as we would usually expect.
Does that mean it doesn’t matter for investors, or should be thinking about it and positioning themselves for the outcome?
Does it even matter if Trump or Biden wins, as long as the Fed keeps printing and stimulus keeps coming, and would any decisive win be better than a disputed result?
On this week’s podcast, Simon Lambert, Georgie Frost and Sarah Davidson, discuss the US election and what it could mean for our money over here in the UK.
And if two septuagenarians arguing about who is going to be the boss of the free world isn’t your thing, what about investing in the future beyond that?
Keeping on the investment tip, the team dive into the world of green money and how to invest to back improving the world, or even get a green mortgage or current account.
