LSR Blog - Batley: Brexit market fears related to France more than Britain

We held a client seminar on the economic impact of Brexit in June 2015 – as always at LSR we like to be well ahead of the curve!

However, since the middle of last year our concerns about the immediate impact of the referendum have been amplified by the declining household savings rate. With consumer demand closer to the end of its own cycle, any investment disruption will be keenly felt.
