What's Next for Brexit? Thoughts from Our President

Today's "Brexit" announcement was a surprise to many of us, and speaking for myself, it will take a while for the reality of the UK leaving the EU to sink in. 

This historic news will be significant mainly in terms of geopolitics and local UK politics, law, and social relations. There's a saying that "politics is personal," and this decision is clearly a personal and emotional one for the British.

Of course here at CreditRiskMonitor we will be closely following the impact on companies world-wide as Brexit unfolds. Changes in trading relationships, pricing, and market access may change the fortunes of particular firms and even whole industries. It's more important ever to think globally and to take proactive steps to monitor risk. 

We are here to help you monitor your risk. The markets have proven their wisdom over time, and we're a big believer in what those signals say.

It may take a day or two for markets to settle down, after the volatility caused by today's surprise. The FRISK® Stress Index will begin to show the new consensus next week, and we hope you will take full advantage of this new capability, reviewing the industries and countries important to your business.

Please feel free to reach out directly to your account manager or directly to me at wdanner@creditriskmonitor.com if you have any questions all and to be sure we are helping you cover the companies, industries and countries you are worried about.

We'll all stay tuned for what's next.
