In light of UK voting in favour of leaving the EU, a leading fund manager says investors should not panic.

Investors should realise that it will still take some time for the changes to take place, says George Lucas, managing director Instreet.

“In fact, the UK would probably remain a member of the EU for several more years. In the meantime, UK politicians could drag out the process or try to find a solution that replicates EU membership in all but name.

“This also means there would be time to clear up some of the uncertainties about the wider impact of Brexit, notably the arrangements which would govern UK trade with the remainder of the EU and the rest of the world.

“We see little effect on these trade partnerships. Europe is Britain’s biggest trade partner but, as a percentage of trade, this has reduced dramatically since the global financial crisis as Europe has stagnated whilst China, the US and emerging markets have grown.

“And finally, as expected the markets have reacted negatively, driven by fears about the British economy. This may also cause further delay with a US Fed hike and induce additional monetary easing elsewhere including from the European Central Bank and Bank of Japan,” said Mr Lucas.
