  1. Brexit 2019 financial markets coverage on Refinitiv includes trusted news and data via Eikon, with cutting-edge insight from the the world’s largest leading news provider, Reuters.
  2. The Global Markets Forum on Eikon Messenger is hosting a special series of Brexit interviews with distinguished guests, with participants also able to join the debate.
  3. Recent LiveChats have included interviews with former Goldman Sachs Asset Management chairman Jim O’Neill and the ex-Brexit minister Lord Bridges.

The timing of Britain’s expected departure from the European Union has been delayed by two or more weeks, prolonging the Brexit Day uncertainty for financial markets.

The final outcome will determine the role Britain will play on the world stage for decades to come and the effect on financial markets may be as profound as the whole Brexit debacle itself.

The impact of Brexit 2019

Europe remains Britain’s most important export market and its biggest source of foreign investment. Being a member of the bloc has helped London cement its role as a global financial centre, but that position could erode if leaving the EU triggers an exodus of companies.

The UK government expects the country’s economy to grow anywhere from four to nine percent less over the next 15 years than it would were it to remain inside the bloc. Everything depends on the type of deal it has when it leaves. The likelihood of a no-deal Brexit remains high.

The uncertainty surrounding Brexit presents a great opportunity for you to leverage the depth and breadth of Refinitiv’s coverage, including access to trusted news and market-leading data via Eikon that can help you make sound Brexit-related decisions.
