Podcast - No election rally for the dollar

Our Global Head of Forex Strategy, Peter Kinsella, shares his thoughts on the forthcoming US presidential election.



The forthcoming US presidential election is a key moment for FX markets, because it will lead to important economic and political policy changes. Consensus expectations are for a Joe Biden victory, but as yet, a so-called ‘blue wave’, where the Democrats take control of both houses of Congress, has not been priced in. We anticipate that currencies with a high beta to global growth, like the Australian dollar and the Swedish krona, will fare well in a ‘blue wave’ scenario. If President Donald Trump wins, USD/JPY may fall to levels of around 103.

Our expertise

Here at UBP, we anticipate that the USD will weaken on a sustained basis over the coming year, reflecting the rapid deterioration in the US current account deficit. Longer-term USD weakness is inevitable in our view, and if Trump retains the presidency, long gold positions should also perform well, due to the possibility of a continued deterioration in US–China relations.

Des joyaux cachés parmi les SMID Caps suisses et européennes

Les sociétés de petite et moyenne capitalisation («SMID Caps») affichent traditionnellement des taux de croissance et des rendements supérieurs sur le long terme en comparaison des grandes capitalisations. Il est en effet plus facile de générer une croissance dynamique à partir d’une plus petite structure. Par ailleurs, les SMID Caps suisses et européennes offrent généralement aux investisseurs une exposition idéale aux grandes tendances de croissance séculaires.
