The long view: Investing through adversity
Today, the winds of change are stirring as the U.S. seeks to dramatically alter its trading relationship with China through steel tariffs and other punitive measures. Just recently, U.S. trade officials vowed to increase the pressure by imposing additional tariffs and seeking to block China’s technology-related investments in the United States. New Perspective portfolio manager, Steve Watson, sat down to discuss his view of increasingly tense U.S.-China trade relations, his outlook on Chinese and global equities, and his flexible approach to guiding NP through periods of volatile markets and geopolitical turmoil.
