On Friday sterling was still trading 11 per cent down at US$1.34 while our 10-year risk-free rate was 15 per cent lower at 2 per cent. Risk-free rates are being traded off against risk premia in reflection of the new uncertainties unleashed by the non-binding preferences of the 39 per cent of eligible British voters."
