How Government Policy Drives Stock Market Returns

Actions in Washington D.C. can be a powerful leading indicator for investment returns. By identifying big changes in government policy, investors can uncover "policy alpha" opportunities at the sector down to the individual security level. Policy catalysts also yield uncorrelated return opportunities outside of the economic cycle.
