Coronavirus uncertainty

By John Roe

Investors are accustomed to assessing risk, estimating the likelihood of potential outcomes and their impacts.

But the coronavirus is a black swan, unpredictable and with an eventual outcome shrouded in uncertainty. I discussed this uncertainty during my recent Bloomberg appearance.

With failed football dreams behind him, John applies the same level of enthusiasm to investing and how to improve outcomes by battling behavioural biases. He leads on oil research, but also gets involved in a wide range of macro topics. That love of variety also explains his craft beer fascination. Hard to shut up, he’s a regular guest on Bloomberg, a conference speaker and an LGIM Director. His analytical thinking benefits from being an Actuary with an economics degree and having previously worked as a strategist at RBS.
