Brexit

With Article 50 triggered on 29 March 2017, Brexit is a reality. As the UK begins its exit strategy, we can help you prepare for a post-Brexit world.

May 2017

There’s no shortage of news coverage and expert commentary on the UK’s decision to leave the European Union.

To help you navigate what can feel like a barrage of opinions, we launched the State Street Brexometer Index in November 2016, a quarterly snapshot that gauges investor sentiment on the impact of Brexit. In our second-quarter survey, together with PollRight*, we surveyed professional global investors between 29 March and 19 April 2017.

Here’s what we found

Sixty-four percent of investors still expect to see no change in their company’s holdings of UK assets. Interestingly, however, our survey revealed that a growing proportion (19% vs. 16% previously) expect their company to decrease holdings of UK assets in the coming six months. And they’re even more split about medium-term prospects for global economic growth.

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