SIFMA Podcast: The VIX and the Virus
May 7 - July 31
A discussion with Deutsche Bank and SIFMA Insights
The emergence of the novel coronavirus in the first quarter of 2020 caused severe shocks to the economy and capital markets. Volatility, as measured by the CBOE Volatility Index, or the VIX, has reached historic highs. The VIX has started to come down, but remains elevated. In this podcast, we ask: is the worst of the market rout behind us?
Ken Bentsen, SIFMA president and CEO, sat down with Katie Kolchin, Director of SIFMA Research and author of SIFMA Insights, and Torsten Sløk, chief economist and managing director at Deutsche Bank Securities. Pulling from their recent research and analyses, they put context around the recent market volatility and shed light on what may lie ahead for markets, the economy and COVID-19.
