US Market Outlook Part II: Post Presidential Election and COVID-19

Wednesday, Nov 11, 2020


In April, we heard from BlackRock’s Kurt Reiman with predictions about what the US market might do under the pressures of the global pandemic. Now, seven months later, the same group of speakers will revisit those predictions and the current state of the US economy in consideration of both Covid-19 and the US presidential election.

In this discussion, we will hear from experts at BlackRock as they examine where the market is, where it is going, and how to think about the macroeconomics of the new financial policies put into place in the US to address the current economic challenges.
