Brexit and its impact near and far: deal, no deal?
Sit down for a conversation with international business executives as we discuss the latest risks and developments of Brexit. What happens next? How will things play out as the UK government faces the formidable obsticles of a lost majority and the polarizing affect of Article 50. What impact will the new Prime Minister have on all of this? Once Brexit is finally decided, what then? How will the markets respond? What kind of, if any, volatility can we expect?
