Trump wins US Presidential election

Donald Trump has won the US Presidential election and the Republicans also retained their majorities in both the House of Representatives and the Senate.

Trump’s election introduces significant uncertainty to the outlook for government policy, economic activity and the US Federal Reserve (Fed). Market volatility has spiked in reaction to the result and we expect this to continue over the coming weeks amid speculation about his likely policy agenda. However, we stress the importance of not overreacting and waiting for clear announcements of priorities.

The president-elect and House Republicans have placed large tax cuts and corporate tax reform at the heart of their fiscal agenda. Mr Trump has also advocated a large increase in infrastructure spending.

At face value, the above policy agenda would boost economic activity over the next two years. However, Mr Trump has pledged to increase trade protection and reduce immigration – policies that would simultaneously weaken economic growth and increase inflationary pressures.

Clearly it is too early to fully assess the implications of the election result on markets, politics and the economy. A downbeat mood in markets could last several weeks but the medium-term implications for markets depend on the actual policies of President Trump and what can be negotiated through Congress.

As always, we encourage our clients to hold diversified portfolios structured for long term investment goals and designed to look through the short term noise.  If you are in any doubt about your own portfolio, please just get in touch with us.
