As the Brexit vote nears the pollsters are split on the outcome, but a leave majority appears to be edging ever closer.
As the Brexit vote nears the pollsters are split on the outcome, but a leave majority appears to be edging ever closer. While much of the coverage so far has focused on the impact the UK leaving the EU would have on home soil, the rest of the Europe is unlikely to come out unscathed in a Brexit scenario.
We ask three investment experts what the impact will be on the rest of Europe and which areas will be affected. While they argue that the outlook is uncertain, much as it is for a Brexit scenario, such a move could spark a chain of other referendums, for Spain, the Netherlands and Sweden. One expert says it could “spell the end of the whole euro project”.
Elsewhere on the site we speak to InvesmentQuorum chief executive Lee Robertson in our new Investment Innovators series, which looks at key investment and fund selector figures in the industry. We talk to him about his best and worst investment calls of the past year, how he finds new funds and the changes he is making to clients' portfolios in the run-up to the EU referendum.
We also now have comment and Q&A functionality on the site, so feel free to ask our panel of experts any questions you have about the UK economy or equity markets. We recently asked Stephanie Flanders what her outlook for sterling is in the run-up to the Brexit vote. Do you agree with her answer or not? Join in the debate.
