UBS House View Monthly

25 August 2016: The bright side of Brexit?

– Many feared the UK vote to exit the EU would represent a setback for global markets. Instead we have seen price gains for assets across the risk spectrum.

– The UK’s shift back toward monetary easing has contributed to lower global yields. This can help restrain the pace of US rate rises, since the Fed is eager to avoid a harmful appreciation of the US dollar.

– The Brexit vote has also promoted renewed debate about the limits of monetary policy and the need for alternative means to stimulate faster economic growth.

– We remain overweight US and emerging market equities. We have closed our short Australian dollar position versus the US dollar.
