A.P. Moeller Maersk (AMKBY) shares fell 3.51% Wednesday in Copenhagen on concerns that a Donald Trump victory could impact global trade.
In a speech following his upset victory, Trump said that he would work with other nations and insisted that while American interests would be put first, the U.S. will "get along with all other nations willing to get along with us."
Throughout the campaign, however, the Republican President-Elect vowed to pull out of or renegotiate trade deals, including the Trans-Pacific Partnership and NAFTA.
In his vision Trump said of NAFTA partners, "If they don't agree to a renegotiation, we will submit notice that the U.S. intends to withdraw from the deal."
This has sent companies with exposure to global markets - and global trade - lower across the board.
Cement titan Lafargeholcim (HCMLY) shares fell 0.85% €50 each by mid-day in Paris, while global brewer AB InBev (BUD) was down 4.2% and multi-national consumer goods company Unilever (UL) recently lost 2.5%.
