After Brexit - understanding the impact on financial markets

A deal has finally been agreed between European Union and UK, ending over four years of negotiation and safeguarding nearly a $1 trillion of annual trade - providing clarity and relief to Brexit-weary investors. On the first day of trading in 2021, markets reacted positively with the UK index of leading shares closing at its highest since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Latest insights

Levels of consumer confidence in the UK and in the EU-27 have tended to track each other closely, particularly since the global financial crisis of 2008/09. Through most of 2020, UK consumers tended to be a little more pessimistic than their EU-27 counterparts. If the new trading arrangements leads to disruption in the flow of goods into the UK, this gap may be expected to widen further.
