Hard Brexit

With expectations now set for a triggering of Article 50 — which would signal the start of Brexit negotiations — early in 2017, the likelihood of a deal allowing the U.K. to maintain trade relationships with the EU seems to be fading.

There are some signs emerging, beyond the continued weakness of the pound, of Brexit uncertainty starting to hurt companies in the U.K.

Prospects for the property market also appear to be dimming, with data this morning showing mortgage approvals falling to the lowest level in two years while Deutsche Bank analysts expect central London offices to lose as much as 30 percent of their value by the end of next year.

'Hard Brexit' could cost British finance firms 38 billion pounds

If finance firms lose the right to freely sell their services across Europe, 75,000 jobs may disappear and the government may lose up to 10 billion pounds in tax revenue, the report by consultancy firm Oliver Wyman said.

U.K. Investments: Keep Calm and Carry On

By Nir Kaissar

Sure, the pound may hang around its current level for a while, or it may weaken further before it reverses course.

But to me the pound’s history doesn’t say hedge U.K. stocks; it says go buy those fancy Northampton shoes while they’re on sale.

Sturgeon Warns of Possible Scottish Independence Referendum

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon closed the Scottish National Party conference in Glasgow on Saturday with a vow to take action to keep Scotland inside the EU’s enormous single market even if Britain leaves.

She said if the British government rejects those efforts and takes steps to hurt Scotland’s economy she would “make sure” that Scots get another chance to choose a better future.


In another sign that Sturgeon is determined to place Scotland on its own path, she said she plans to open a Scottish “trade and innovation” hub in Berlin, the German capital, and to set up a trade envoy system to pursue Scottish business links.
