The COVID-19 Investor Pulse Check Series

What is the impact of the crisis on investors’ expectations for the US economy, the US stock market, and business leaders?

BCG’s COVID-19 Investor Pulse Check series is intended to bring the voice of the investor to business leaders and board members. While we feature the most recent investor perspectives here, you can explore earlier editions below.

The latest edition—conducted July 17–19, 2020—finds that investors expect the pandemic’s impact on the US economy will last one quarter longer—through Q2 2021. In addition, only 11% of investors strongly agree that management teams are seizing the moment to build advantage in the crisis and beyond. The respondents represent investment firms with more than $4 trillion in combined assets under management. They cover a broad spectrum of investing types and styles, and about 80% are portfolio managers and senior analysts directly responsible for making buy, sell, and hold decisions.
