MANAGE THE IMPACTS OF BREXIT
Cut through the Brexit noise
Supporting you through Brexit
Prime Minister Theresa May filed formal Brexit divorce papers on March 29, 2017, pitching the United Kingdom into the unknown and triggering years of uncertain negotiations that will test the endurance of the European Union.
The UK and the EU now have until March 2019 to agree on the terms of the Brexit divorce and reach a separate deal on the shape of their future trading relationship. The outcome of the negotiations will shape the future of Britain's $2.6 trillion economy, the world's fifth biggest, and determine whether London can keep its place as one of the top two global financial centers.
For the EU, already reeling from successive crises over debt and refugees, the loss of Britain is the biggest blow yet to 60 years of efforts to forge European unity in the wake of two world wars.
