We haven’t been publishing regular Brexit commentary because there remains so much uncertainty about what will actually happen, and what the impacts will be. Instead we’ve focused on looking after our customers’ investments and servicing them well, as this is where our key strengths and priorities lie.
Global or domestic changes nearly always provide challenges and opportunities – Brexit is no exception. Rest assured that throughout this period of uncertainty, we’re looking to make your clients’ investments work hard and provide the best returns possible in the short term, while maintaining our focus on our long term investment strategy.
We’re keeping a watchful eye on the political developments as well as working with trade and regulatory bodies. We’ll let you know of any changes that may impact on your business or clients’ policies, including any that may affect you even if you don’t provide services into European countries. Meantime, we believe we’re as prepared as we can be to ensure we’re ready to react to the circumstances as they emerge.
We’ve published a short update for customers on our website to keep them updated.
