A Verus Market Update webinar was held on Thursday, April 9th at 11:00am (PDT).

The COVID-19 crisis has had a sudden impact on the capital markets, which has been made worse by the recent disruption in the oil market. Now is a good time for investors to take stock of the possible intermediate and long-term implications of these disruptions, as well as to try to assess the possible short-term factors which might cause further market disruption.

On our call, we discussed:

  • Recent market moves, their causes and implications
  • The continuing progression of the COVID-19 virus
  • How much the virus has impacted employment, growth and earnings, and whether that effect is already visible in statistics
  • The longer-term portfolio implications that investors may want to consider
  • Concerns that we have heard raised during our conversations with investors
