The COVID-19 pandemic has made 2020 a truly singular year. With a deep global recession resulting from strict lockdown measures being implemented throughout much of the world, there has been little for investors to cheer. But with signs that the worst may be mostly behind us, an increasing number of opportunities will undoubtedly present themselves as we move into 2021.
The pandemic has also fundamentally changed our everyday existence, forcing us to make significant adjustments to how we choose to live, work and learn. With such comprehensive transformations, therefore, industries that may not have offered standout investment opportunities prior to the onset of the virus may suddenly now have notable appeal, and vice versa.
As such, 2021 will be more interesting than most years from an investing perspective, with COVID-19 offering up new and compelling ways for investors to prosper.
