In this election special episode of Insight Talks, we explore the results of the UK General Election and what a change in the governing party – the first in over 14 years - will mean for the economy.

Isabel and James talk through the significance of Labour’s historic landslide win and consider the main question on everyone’s lips - how has the market reacted and what is the impact on asset markets? 

Our experts also discuss what exactly this governmental change might mean for policy across the spectrum and look at the timeline of upcoming key dates to watch for.

In the spirit of our election special, Isabel and James also check in on forthcoming elections in other parts of the world, namely the complexities of the French Elections and the recent US electoral debates across the pond.
