InvestNow News – 26th June – India Avenue – Thematic Opportunities Arising in India

COVID-19 has impacted lives, livelihoods, and economic growth in almost every country. India, given its significant and dense population, is deeply impacted as seen by its 500,000 recorded infections and 15,000 deaths. It is likely that economic recovery is likely to be slow and measured as most of the stimulus so far has been directed towards the supply-side rather than demand.

17 June 2020 – Jacob Mitchell, Chief Investment Officer and Lead Portfolio Manager

InvestNow News – 19th June – Legg Mason – Social and Economic Consequences Emanating from the Coronavirus

15 June 2020 – Patrick Bradley – Senior Vice President, Investment Research

Some businesses will fail, despite the efforts of monetary authorities and governments to replace the income lost and to stem the spread of the virus. We have […]
