Summer 2016 Investor Agenda
Of course, the matter dominating all headlines and trustees’ attention at the moment is the impact of the Brexit referendum vote – particularly the economic consequences and the immediate implications for schemes’ investment portfolios. Many trustees will be looking carefully at these whilst also trying to assess longer-term matters such as the potential impact on sponsor covenant and their consequent attitude to risk.
Our first Article naturally therefore summarises the legal implications of Brexit at a high level: much will become clearer over the coming months as we start to see indications of what sort of future relationship with the EU the UK Government will seek, and how accommodating the EU is in response.
Meanwhile, we include our usual round up of other developments and the next article in our “what if it all goes wrong …” series.
