Donald Trump Elected President of the US - Implications for Investors and Australia

Wednesday, November 09, 2016

I just read and watched an objective view of the Trump election victory by Dr. Shane Oliver, Head of Investment Strategy and Economics and Chief Economist at AMP Capital (Click here to read the article or watch the short video).

Key points to consider:

  • Donald Trump’s election as President of the United States risks ushering in a period of policy uncertainty which could cause further share market weakness in the short term.
  • Australia and Asia generally are particularly exposed to this given the high trade exposure regionally.
  • Trump’s victory is a negative for “risk assets” like shares and the $A in the short term – but if he becomes more pragmatic as President, any short term weakness will provide a buying opportunity.

Shane's concluding comments are worth noting and adhering to:

"Finally, while the Presidential election is an important political event, investors should remain focused on adhering to their financial objectives, ensuring that their portfolios are well diversified across asset classes and geographies, and continuing to take a long-term view."

Hang in there and feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
