Professor Robert Engle's comments on geopolitical risk and its impact on financial markets are referenced
— January 29, 2020
Excerpt from MoneyControl -- "Engle touched on the subject of geopolitical risks and impact of these risks on financial markets. Geopolitical risks basically mean all the risks which arise due to political tensions between two countries/regions on all kinds of aspects: trade wars, terrorism, military and the like. These risks, which ideally should remain within the conflicted regions, spread across the world financial markets, especially if conflicts involve the United States and oil-producing regions — as is often the case."
