Published on 09 Feb 20241 minute read

This monthly commentary gives a roundup of global markets and trends. 

In this edition:

  • We consider how general elections globally could impact economies and stock markets
  • Behind in the polls the UK Government may cuts taxes whilst Labour seek closer ties with the EU
  • In European elections centre-right parties could make gains and be able influence decisions including restricting environmental policies
  • A tight US election result could be disputed and further polarise a divided America impacting markets
  • However, despite political uncertainty and geopolitical risk emanating from the Middle East, as well as China and the US, the backdrop for stocks still looks positive
