34. How Politics Affect the Stock Market w/Cole Kimball


In this episode of the Financial Clarity for Doctors podcast, Corey and Rachelle chat with Finity Group's Chief Investment Officer, Cole Kimball, CFA ® about the upcoming Presidential election and how the markets may react during election cycles. We talk about various economic policies and ask, do they hold up or is there more to the story?


As with most things in life and finances you'll come to find the answers mostly lies somewhere in the middle.

What about Congress?  We pay a lot of attention to presidential races, but does the political makeup of the House and Senate have aimpact on the stock market?

Does the tax environment have an impact on the stock market? It seems like there’s a common conception that favorable tax environments for businesses can spur business growth, which should be good for investors in those companies – is there any data that supports or contradicts that?

Does policy matter over politics? Say, how we deal with trade as an example. Does that have an impact on international markets?
