Australian Stockmarket wins the Election

Our analysis shows that Federal Elections are positive for the Australian stockmarket, regardless of the outcome.

A look back at the last 30 years and 11 elections, has seen the Australian stockmarket increase by 1.31% each month on average in the three months following an election. That equates to an almost 4% gain for the quarter immediately following an election.

Senior Strategy Analyst Rebecca Sullivan discusses our analysis with our Chief Economist Michael Knox:
