Government triggers Article 50 to begin Brexit

In our January newsletter, we outlined Theresa May’s 12 objectives as she laid out her vision post-Brexit Britain.

Since then, there have been a handful of developments in the UK leaving the EU.

Article 50 has been triggered, which formally begins the Brexit process.

EU Council President, Donald Tusk, has since said the other European countries “already miss [the UK].”

Upon hearing Mr Tusk’s comments, Theresa May said: “We’ll still be part of Europe, although we’ll be leaving the EU institutions.”

The triggering of Article 50 means Brexit is scheduled to officially take place on 29th March 2019.

Alan Mellor said: “It’s still difficult to know how Brexit will affect our client’s investments. We do though keep a close watch on the balance of client’s investments, the key is to have a sensible long term investment plan and a diverse range of investments in a broad range of assets and geographies.”
