The results are significant, as an evenly split Senate allows incoming Vice-President Kamala H...Two months on from the election, US politics is back at the forefront of the news agenda following unexpected defeats for both Republican senators in the runoffs for their respective seats in Georgia. The results are significant, as an evenly split Senate allows incoming Vice-President Kamala Harris to cast deciding tie-breaking votes when necessary. In effect, this removes the Republican majority in the upper chamber, which, combined with the Democrats’ majority in the House of Representatives, means President-elect Biden has a much greater chance of implementing his policies, which are likely to include further stimulus with a strong decarbonisation agenda.. This will have an impact not just politically, but for the broader financial markets, too. Sahil Mahtani, Strategist in Ninety One’s Investment Institute, and Deirdre Cooper, Co-Portfolio Manager of Ninety One’s Global Environment Strategy, offer insight on what a Biden presidency combined with a Democratic Senate could mean for investors.
