Practitioner series: What matters in politics and geopolitics (Fully Booked)
Wed 08 May 19 at Farmers & Fletchers, London

President Trump's unconventional approach to policymaking has generated unprecedented interest in geopolitics on some measures, both in the media and amongst investors. The current environment seems unique for its combination of US-generated geopolitical stress plus country-specific political risks elsewhere. Given limited resources, how can investors rank-order political and geopolitical risks globally to determine which are worth trading or hedging?

This presentation outlines a framework drawing on several JPM research reports published over the past decade on topics such a military conflict, oil shocks, trade wars, EMU breakup, populism, US Presidential impeachment and US government shutdowns.

This event has been organised by the practationer series working group.
