Reuters quoted MBBP’s Shannon Zollo in an article regarding the financial industry’s propensity for a Hillary Clinton presidency. Zollo expressed that the “devil you know” is the more predictable, and therefore safer, outcome because in an election as turbulent and polarizing as this one, the impact could eventually destabilize potential future deals. Before the election, various companies were receiving acquisition loans as they were expecting the market to be stable with a Clinton victory.
