The spread of the COVID-19 virus throughout the world is a shock that has significant impact on people's lives as well as economies and markets. Explore research on how we are assessing the impact of this event, as well as how we handle this or other such shocks in our investment process.
Recorded April 23, 2020: In conversation with Senior Portfolio Strategist Jim Haskel, Co-CIO Bob Prince examines the forces COVID-19 unleashed on the economy, the measures that will be required to restart the flywheel between income and spending, and the range of ways the shock is impacting different countries, sectors, and companies.

Recorded Feb 26, 2020: With the growing spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), Senior Portfolio Strategist Jim Haskel sat down with Chief Security Officer Richard Falkenrath and Co-CIO Greg Jensen to discuss what we currently know about the coronavirus, how it compares to disease outbreaks over the last century, and its potential impact on economies and markets.
