Coronavirus and Markets: What's Next?

April 2020 

Will there be a V-shaped recovery? Are the Fed's credit purchases signaling opportunity? Which economic sectors will survive the COVID-19 pandemic? Our panel of experts weigh in, moderated by CNBC's Ron Insana.

Featured Speakers:
Ron Insana
Senior Analyst and Commentator at CNBC
Nanette Abuhoff Jacobson
Managing Director and Multi-Asset Strategist at Wellington Management Company LLP and Global Investment Strategist for Hartford Funds
Jon Mackay
Head of Sales, Wealth Management Solutions at Schroders Investment Management
Ted Lucas
Head of Investment Strategies and Solutions, Hartford Funds


Here are some excerpts from the recent panel discussion:

Ron Insana:  We’ve seen historic volatility and unbelievable moves—the fastest bear market in the history of Wall Street occurred in a matter of 21 days. The S&P 500 Index level went from a peak to trough decline of 37%, and we’ve since recovered some of that. With that backdrop, I will ask the panel some questions we’ve received from the audience. What’s your take on where we are with this multi-biologic and economic shock?

The S&P 500 Index is a market capitalization-weighted price index composed of 500 widely held common stocks. The index is unmanaged and not available for direct investment. Past performance does not guarantee future results.

Important Risks: Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. • Foreign investments may be more volatile and less liquid than US investments and are subject to the risk of currency fluctuations and adverse political and economic developments. These risks may be greater for investments in emerging markets. • Fixed income security risks include credit, liquidity, call, duration, and interest-rate risk. As interest rates rise, bond prices generally fall. • Investments in high-yield (“junk”) bonds involve greater risk of price volatility, illiquidity, and default than higher-rated debt securities
