The Impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic on the Financial Markets

In this webinar recording, Professor Vesa Puttonen from Aalto University illustrates how financial markets globally have responded to the current Covid-19 pandemic.


The stock market finally ended their longest bull run in history amid coronavirus and this black swan event resulted in panic selling in other asset classes, too. Capital markets, central banks and financial regulators have been actively taking steps to mitigate major market disruptions. Massive fiscal stimulus packages have been announced.

•    How shall we proceed? 
•    Which are the losing and winning businesses?
