Coronavirus and Market Update Webinar

This podcast features an audio excerpt from a Market Update Webinar provided exclusively for Fisher Investments clients. In this podcast, Fisher Investments’ Senior Vice President of Research and Investment Policy Committee Member, Michael Hanson discusses recent market volatility and our current outlook.

Since hitting all-time highs in mid-February, markets entered one of the swiftest downturns in history, largely based on fears over the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite all the fear, we believe what’s most important for investors is to stay disciplined and avoid short-sighted investing mistakes.

While many believe recession is a foregone conclusion, we aren’t so sure. Institutional closures in response to the pandemic increase the likelihood of recession, but the duration of these closures matters a lot too. Michael discusses three potential scenarios regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and what each might mean for markets.

Investing in securities involves a risk of loss. Past performance is never a guarantee of future returns. Investing in foreign stock markets involves additional risks, such as the risk of currency fluctuations.
