Welcome to the latest issue. At the time of writing,
the UK Government said it is ‘ready and willing’ to do
a deal to leave the EU if new terms are negotiated
with Brussels. But the new Prime Minister, Boris
Johnson, has vowed the UK will leave the EU ‘come
what may’ by 31 October – the date the UK must
depart if no deal has been reached.
Even though we don’t definitively know what
the impact of Brexit will be on both the UK’s and
other countries’ economies, it doesn’t mean this is
necessarily a bad time to invest internationally. Any
well-run investment portfolio should include exposure
to companies from around the world. This gives
investors access to a greater range of opportunities
and allows portfolios to be insulated from any shocks
that could affect individual economies.
