State Street Brexometer

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

July 2017

It’s been one year since the citizens of the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union. While questions remain, our latest Brexometer poll shows the tides of uncertainty are starting to shift – in a positive direction.

In our third-quarter survey, together with PollRight*, we surveyed 103 professional global investors between 20 June and 4 July, 2017.

Here’s what we found

Forty-five percent of investors expect to see positive global economic growth in the near-medium term (three to five years); a 13 percent increase since we began the survey in September 2017. There has also been a modest increase in appetite for UK assets with 16 percent planning to gain a greater exposure over the next six months, a three percent rise since the start of 2017. And while the majority (72 percent) feel Brexit will impact their business, this figure is down by seven percent versus last quarter.

Our research, along with commentary from our experts, can help you get ready as the Brexit countdown begins.
