THE EU REFERENDUM: THE FUTURE OF THE UK AND EUROPE

Print

 

In an extraordinary political environment, little clarity has emerged on the timing of the UK’s exit from the EU, or the nature of its future relationship with Europe.

This edition seeks to provide some objective insight on possible alternative models to EU membership, and sets out some case studies. We consider the implications of ‘third country status’, in which the UK would sit outside the Single Market and leave both the European Union and European Economic Area – a possible outcome given the importance of sovereignty in the ‘Vote Leave’ campaign manifesto. There is also a short briefing on
the concept of EU passporting, of particular relevance to Financial Institutions, and of interest to those they serve.

We also provide a market update and some commentary on the latest developments from the major credit ratings agencies.
