Brexit muddle-through towards the approaching parliamentary vote

The Brexit-related newsflow since the UK/EU agreement on 25 November 2018 has been quite intense. In our view, it has slightly increased the probability that the UK remains in the EU beyond March 2019, thus prolonging the uncertainty over how (and even whether) Brexit will happen.

Investment views: Regarding the markets, at the moment, they continue to price in some sort of weak muddle-through scenario. As uncertainties around Brexit outcomes remain high, sterling will likely continue to be under pressure, with some downside risks remaining (especially vs the Japanese yen), given the increasing probability of no deal.

    Cross Asset Investment Strategy - March 2019

    White papersWed, 13 Mar 2019

    If an investor had woken up today after three months and looked at the markets, he/she could reasonably say that not much had changed. The year started on strong footing and risk assets experienced a massive rebound in the first weeks of 2019, erasing most of the losses experienced in one of the most awful Decembers in history. As a result some valuation gaps have been closed somewhat, though not exhausted. Markets switched rapidly from a “fear” to a “greed” mood. Catalysts of the renewed ...

    Brexit: an agreement is now more likely, but be aware of a no deal risk, not priced in

    White papersTue, 12 Mar 2019

    Developments and scenarios ahead: This is probably the most decisive week for Brexit and the situation is still rapidly evolving.
