Quarterly update – Autumn 2018
Welcome to the Autumn update. We have had some great weather over the last couple of weeks and I hope you have all been making the most of it. It is set to last for another couple of weeks, which I am sure is welcome news to us all after the snowstorms earlier this year.
With speculation of a rise of interest rates in apparent discussion, a loss of confidence in Theresa May’s Leave vote and the ongoing Brexit negotiations, spirits raised by England’s World Cup performance may start to dampen.
In further developments, as you may have seen in the news, Boris Johnson resigned from his position as Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs. It is yet to be seen how this may impact Brexit negotiations and the markets moving forward, however we will keep you informed of any impacting fluctuations.
