Survey: NAFTA withdrawal would hit ag stocks

The survey, sponsored by the Trade Leadership Coalition and conducted by FTI Consulting, includes 103 responses from 97 different buy-side investment firms. Ninety-two percent of respondents are portfolio managers overseeing assets of $2.3 trillion.

“NAFTA helps make America globally competitive and provides a stable investment environment that creates jobs and prosperity in all three countries.”
