Brexit news for Financial Advisers and Paraplanners - Gam: EU Referendum Results

So the result is in and the Great British public have on balance decided it’s in the UK’s self-interest to go it alone outside the confines of the EU. It would seem that the desire to vote on the two topics of immigration and perceived sovereignty issues was the swing factor rather than focus on general economic benefits. The more recent polls were pointing to a win for the Remain camp so this comes as a real surprise. Even the betting odds throughout this EU referendum debate, which are historically far more accurate than the polls, had the remain camp to win from an early start. In my experience this certainly has to be the biggest miss that betting forecasts, polls and even markets have made collectively. more...

Brexit news for Financial Advisers and Paraplanners - Fidelity's Kevin O'Nolan: Brexit - Central bank action likely

“With Britain voting to leave the EU, we are likely to see significant volatility – particularly for UK assets - the market having almost completely priced in a vote to remain. The FTSE 100 will open sharply down, with the futures off almost 9% and sterling has already fallen more than 10% to the lowest level since 1985. Other major currencies look to have been relatively well behaved; while the euro initially fell in early morning trading against the dollar, it has since strengthened. The Japanese yen briefly reached the 100 mark against the dollar on safe haven flows, but has weakened since – possibly on the back of intervention by the Bank of Japan. more...

Brexit news for Financial Advisers and Paraplanners - Fidelity International's Paras Anand on EU referendum + details of Dominic Rossi conference call

The vote by the UK electorate to leave the EU has certainly taken both the currency markets and stock markets by surprise.
