Has the French election rescued the euro and will Donald Trump deliver? John Redwood on the Investing Show
Politics is never far from investors’ minds at the moment, but does this create an opportunity.
With the first round of the French election done and questions being raised over whether President Donald Trump can deliver on his economic promises, we welcome politician and Charles Stanley’s chief global strategist John Redwood to the Investing Show.
He says the euro was on the ballot paper in the Netherlands and in France – and it’s passed two of those very big tests with the currency safe in France if Emmanuel Macron goes on to win as expected.
He discusses what the French election so far and its expected outcome could mean for investors and whether if Macron wins it will help Europe continue to raise itself out of its slump.
Mr Redwood also looks across the Atlantic to the US and joins Simon Lambert, of This is Money, and Richard Hunter, of Wilson King IM, in looking at whether Donald Trump can really get tax cuts and reform through, and, crucially, put money in the pockets of the man and woman on the street.
