The recent fallout in the wake of Brexit has left many worried - not just in the UK and Europe - but in numerous countries across the world. Living in a global economy often means a crisis in one corner of the planet can have far flung consequences everywhere else but fortunately our critical financial institutions are more than ready for any possible aftershocks of turmoil from the recent referendum result.
There has been an increasing dissidence between whether or not the United Kingdom (UK) should remain or leave the European Union (EU). But why is the UK considering leaving the EU? Not long ago Prime Minister, David Cameron, had assured there would be a referendum in the Conservative Party manifesto for last May’s election. There is a referendum to be held today, which will determine if the Britain will remain or exit the EU, coining the term “Brexit” (which mirrors the term “Grexit” when Greece considered leaving the euro zone).
