Brexit and beyond
Our focus is always to deliver good outcomes for our clients in whatever political or regulatory environment. Throughout the Brexit process, our view has been that it’s in the best interests of investors for the government to move as swiftly as possible to a conclusion to give certainty to markets. We now know that although a trade deal has been agreed, there is very little which relates to financial services and nothing which would change the impacts of Brexit and our plans to address them outlined below.
Whatever the outcome
You may have questions about what this means for you as an investor with Quilter International. Take a look at the ‘Possible implications for customers’ section below as well as our Q&A. However here are the main points we want you to know:
- Most importantly, we can continue to service your policies and investments for the foreseeable future, regardless of the final Brexit outcome.
- It’s possible that there may be some uncertainty in the economy and markets, but it’s important to remember that all investments can go up and down in value over time. The basic principles of long-term investing remain the same – short-term falls do not necessarily impact on long-term goals. If you do have any concerns regarding the ongoing suitability of your investments, your professional financial adviser is best placed to discuss these with you.
- It will take time for all implications to become clear and some things may change. Our focus is on supporting you and your adviser. We will keep you informed of any changes here and will contact you directly if required.
