Brexit Risks Ruining 60 Years of Western Prosperity
Three times in the past 12 months financial markets have been in a tizz. We went close to a bear market in August 2015, officially entered one in February of this year and then saw frantic currency and equity selloffs after the Brits voted to leave the European Union in the final week of June. The first two of those were buying opportunities. There didn’t seem to be a lot of rational logic behind some of the selling, and we were able to pick up businesses like Alphabet and South32 at very attractive prices. It may yet become irrational, but so far the response to the latter, Brexit, has been orderly and appropriate. This is not jumping at shadows. Brexit has the potential to have a very serious impact on the wider UK economy and many of the companies operating within it. It also has important implications for free trade and the global economy. In this extract from our upcoming quarterly report, we explore the consequences for the wider world. (VIEW LINK)
