Report summary

During his pre-election campaign, and again during his victory speech, President-elect Trump has made bold statements about investment in US infrastructure. Promises to fix infrastructure in dire need of an update have rallied the market. We have seen a surge in share and raw materials prices and an overall improvement in sentiment. Commodity market participants want to understand if this optimism is grounded in reality or just wishful thinking – particularly with regards to steel and iron ore.We believe the overall impact will be small but in this Insight we attempt to quantify it.
