Russia Rundown

This week in the podcast, we run through our thoughts on what a Russian invasion of Ukraine might mean for US equity markets going forward. Three big things you need to know: First, US public companies haven’t been talking much about geopolitics or Russia/Ukraine recently, but the level of conversation is starting to pick up. Second, RBC’s US equity analysts see the potential for slowing growth/recession in Europe, higher energy prices, and potential impacts on supply chains as the most relevant challenges for their industries if a Russian invasion of Ukraine occurs. Third, we continue to believe that geopolitical risk emanating from Russia/Ukraine is not priced into the US equity market, should conditions worsen, and will be a key issue to watch in the weeks and months ahead.
