Oliver's Insights - The threat of war with North Korea - implications for investors

 

Shane Oliver, Head of Investment Strategy and Chief Economist.

The following note takes a look at the risks around war with North Korea.

The key points are as follows:

  • Tensions with North Korea have clearly increased causing volatility in share markets.
  • The risk of war with North Korea has grown but a diplomatic solution remains most likely although there could still be more volatility before this is finally achieved.
  • Historically, shares have been adversely affected initially on the uncertainty of wars (or threatened wars) with a potential significant economic impact, but have tended to rally well before the conflict is over.
