Quarterly Commentary: Policies Provide Economic Life Support

The first quarter of 2020 is likely one that we will all remember. Today we are confronted with a black swan in the form of a pandemic, as COVID-19 continues its rapid spread and causes financial markets to plunge across much of the world. Here are a few highlights from SEI's recent commentary on the last quarter.

  • The arc of global financial markets during the first quarter corresponded with the unfolding realization that outbreak-induced shutdowns would cripple large cross-sections of the world economy.
  • Investors’ dash for cash created chaotic market conditions around the globe — prompting major central banks to resume global financial crisis-era policies in March, which have appeared to help markets return toward orderly function.
  • If your portfolio is aligned with your goals, time horizon and risk tolerance, then time and patience should be on your side. We think selling now could mean missing the rebound that will inevitably happen.
