    Key takeaways:

    • So far, Joe Biden is ahead in electoral college votes, however we await final results from key battleground states
    • The scenario of a Democrat “blue wave” and larger fiscal stimulus measures has become less likely
    • A contested outcome could delay the final election result and implementation of stimulus
    • For now, we remain constructive on the US economic outlook, on further fiscal support and loose monetary conditions
    • Electoral uncertainty may cause some near-term market volatility
    • But we remain overweight on US equities, and stay strategically underweight US Treasuries
