We thought you might like to know just a few of the facts since the Brexit vote….
It has been just over a month since our nation voted to exit the EU. There has been much speculation as to what the economy will look like, huge changes in Government, 100’s of reports with a mix of good and bad as to what may happen….
|Referendum Day 23rd June 2016||25th July 2016||Source|
|£ versus €||1.301533636||1.198114777||XE|
|£ versus $||1.479793706||1.313958886||XE|
|Bank of England||0.50%||0.50%||Bank of England|
As you can see there has been a reasonable gain on the FTSE 100 and virtually the same figures on the FTSE 250 which is regarded to be a better guidance to how UK Businesses are performing.
The £ however has weakened which will affect our purchasing power overseas whether it be a consumer on holiday, buying goods or businesses importing. On the flip side UK prices have effectively become cheaper when purchasing in dollars or euros. The irony of the BREXIT vote is that foreign investors have seen house prices drop in the UK due to the weaker £. This will encourage more foreign investment in UK property.
The Bank of England base rate was expected to drop last month however the Monetary Policy Committee voted 8-1 for rates to remain at 0.5%. Many are predicting a rate drop in August now.
