Brexit Overview

07 June 2017

Immediately after the vote the financial markets were hit hard and sterling fell sharply to a 30 year low. Since then markets have started to calm down and volatility is lower. Focus is now shifting to the impact on growth in the economy.

Undoubtedly, there will be uncertain times ahead and market fluctuations will still occur but with uncertainty there is also opportunity.

In this overview report we will spell out some of the changes that are on the way and will explain some of the uncertainty. It will also highlight some of the opportunities that your business should be aware of and the issues you need to manage.
