Market and COVID-19 Insights & Resources

 

A Message from Lisa Jones, CEO

In the past few weeks we have all been challenged by COVID-19 and its swift impact on the economy, financial markets, and our personal and professional lives. At Amundi Pioneer, we are focused on ensuring the health and safety of our employees as well as a stable operating environment. We remain committed to delivering a high level of service and partnership to our business partners and shareholders. 

Insights & Resources

We expect that US and global growth will suffer a setback that may bleed into the second quarter of 2020, before mostly regaining pre-crisis expansion. We have downgraded our economic growth forecasts in consideration of the COVID-19 crisis. The likely economic damage to China will be considerable. The critical unknown remains global containment of the virus, which will determine the extent and breadth of the recovery.

Please use the extensive resources below to navigate this difficult time.
