Head of Multi-asset Funds Ben Seager-Scott and Senior Research Analyst Louie French give their commentary on what happened in the markets over the month of January 2021
After a strong end to 2020, global markets started 2021 slightly weaker, reflecting more volatile market conditions in the US and a weaker month for bonds in January. The news flow was awash with the storming of the Capitol Building, the completion of the ‘blue wave’ as Democrats took control of the Senate and a bit of unusual trading from the Reddit/WallStreetBets story as well as Covid-19 developments.
