From the debates to the conventions to the electoral college, the 2020 Election is the hot headline across every publication, but what aren’t these publications talking about that are on the minds of millions of US investors? 

How will the election impact my investments? Does the party in power influence stock market returns? If the economy does go through a downturn, will my retirement savings be safe? 

While the stock market is cyclical and it’s tempting for investors to look to history as they try to time their decisions, history has only proven that you can’t count on future returns to match past ones. So what can you do to better understand how the markets behave during election years?
