Elections and Markets - A Historical Perspective

April 05, 2024

The 2024 election is occurring in a period of high economic policy and geopolitical uncertainty, but the market has yet to fully engage with this part of the election narrative. Historically, the stock market has performed better January through October in non-election years than in election years, but better in election years after the election is decided. This year has been atypical. 

With uncertainty likely to rise and the Federal Reserve (Fed) expected to cut rates later this year, we believe investors should consider increasing allocations to strategies invested in higher quality growth names and fixed income as is needed for your personal wealth strategy.

As our good friend, Keith Fitz-Gerald likes to remind us all, "when in doubt, just zoom out however, still focus on the BEST not the rest!" Wise words and certainly applicable to the world today.
