Looking into 2020 with Hermes

From Brexit and the US presidential race to climate change, we present our outlooks for 2020.

2020 will be another uncertain year. Brexit will rumble on, bringing further volatility and polarising the UK political dialogue; China and US relations will remain tense and concern markets, despite a possible partial trade deal being secured before the end of 2019; and the US presidential race will likely unsettle world markets.

Five years on from the Paris Agreement, the UK will host COP26, the next annual United Nations climate-change summit. Countries are due to present updated plans to keep the global rise in temperature well below 2⁰C.

In our 2020 Outlook, we present our perspectives on equities, fixed income, multi asset, private markets and stewardship for the year ahead.
