The Impact of Brexit

Baird's Chief Investment Strategist Weighs In 

On June 23rd the UK voted to leave the European Union, shaking global financial markets. The full impact of this decision may not be known for years, but early ramifications have been significant and widespread. Not long after the vote was official, British Prime Minister David Cameron announced his intention to step down. Meanwhile equity markets around the world saw steep declines, turmoil erupted in world currency markets and gold prices soared - all indications of excessive fear and uncertainty.
