What to expect from the French election

The French election is just around the corner. Join our analysts Tuuli Koivu and Jan von Gerich as they look ahead to the possible outcomes.

Who will become the next French president – Macron, Fillon, Le Pen? It’s still an open race. In this recorded webinar, analysts Tuuli Koivu and Jan von Gerich look ahead to the possible outcomes and market reactions.

The next big political risk looming on the horizon for financial markets is the French presidential election, taking place over two voting rounds on 23 April and 7 May.

Only two candidates can make it to the second round: Will it be Marine Le Pen, the EU-sceptic candidate haunting markets; François Fillon, the bold reformer dogged by scandal; Emmanuel Macron, the Euro-friendly centrist favoured by markets – or a dark horse candidate?

In this webinar recorded on 20 April ahead of the first voting round, Senior Analyst Tuuli Koivu and Global Fixed Income Strategist Jan von Gerich examine the potential outcomes, risks and market implications.
