It is being called the most important election in American history, and as we countdown to November 3, all eyes will be on the United States. 

Over 245 million Americans are eligible to place their ballot on 3rd November, but even after record numbers voting early, there is still increasing uncertainty as to whether we’ll know the outcome on election night.

Please join us for a conversation with Clay Berry, Head of Global Engagement from J.P. Morgan’s Washington, D.C. Government Relations team, and Tom Switzer, Executive Director of the Centre for Independent Studies, who will share their views on what unfolded on election day and how the future may look. Jason Steed, Head of Equity Research, Australia & New Zealand at J.P. Morgan will moderate the discussion as our panelists address:

  • Who will lead the country, and the world through a global pandemic?
  • How will the outcome change international relations and foreign policy?
  • What will the results mean for markets and across asset classes?
  • Where does Australia fit, and what are the implications for our bilateral relationship with the United States?
Proudly Supported by our Principal Partner
