Global company shares rallied after Republican candidate Donald Trump won the US presidential election, with the MSCI All Country World index snapping a two-week decline. US stocks outperformed, amid investor hopes that the president-elect will cut taxes and increase spending on infrastructure, while emerging markets like Mexico weakened on fears trade will suffer under Trump’s protectionist policies. Elsewhere, bond markets continued to decline, as investors expected the new US administration to sell more debt and stoke inflation, which eats away at the value of bonds’ fixed payments.
