On this podcast (recorded January 31, 2017), Amy discusses Brinker’s outlook over the short-term and intermediate-term.

  • The recent actions of President Trump have resulted in an increase in short-term political risk.
  • As we’ve seen before, new presidents typically struggle to get their footing early on in their administration and equities tend to be weaker in February as a consequence.
  • Because of the short-term impact of the negative headlines, Trump may have to spend down some of his political capital now, which could impact his ability to get his full agenda passed in the future.
  • Our view remains constructive on risk assets in the intermediate term.
