State Street Brexometer

The State Street Brexometer Index is our quarterly snapshot that gauges investor sentiment on the impact of Brexit.

February 2018

Brexometer is a quarterly pulse survey designed to gauge investor sentiment on the economic impact of Brexit. The results cover the expected impact to operating models, levels of investment into the UK economy, prospects for global economic growth and appetite for investment risk.

Brexometer Q1 2018 was carried out in conjunction with PollRight*, and captures the views of 102 professional investors, comprising institutional and alternative investors, such as hedge funds, real estate and private equity**.

Here’s what we found

This quarter’s survey suggests that investors are becoming more concerned about holding UK assets, at a time when they are getting increasingly optimistic about the global economy. More than 54 percent of Brexometer respondents were positive on medium-term (three to five year) global growth prospects, while 23 percent suggested they would reduce their holdings of UK assets in the coming six months.

The survey also shows that investors continue to believe that regulatory reporting, such as that required under Solvency II and AIFMD, is the area that businesses will need greatest help with following Brexit.

Our research, along with commentary from our experts, can help you to understand the economic impact of Brexit, and support with your preparation.
