The "March 2017 Brexit Risk Report" delivers the latest insight into the political risk landscape for businesses in the UK as the government triggers Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty.
This report provides the latest analysis for organisations seeking to understand how Brexit could affect their organisations, and includes up-to-date analysis of the political outlook, negotiation landscape and major economic/business implication.
Among the issues covered in this month's report:
- Discussion of the likelihood of Scottish independence - including scenario matrix - in the wake of First Minister Nicola Sturgeon's push for a second independence referendum in response to Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit proposals.
- Risks to business posed by the possibility of an incomplete transposing of the EUacquis into UK law. The Great Repeal Bill will place enormous strain on the resources of the civil service in addition to the use of controversial statutory instruments by the executive - so-called Henry VIII clauses - which could leave the government exposed to significant legal challenge.
- Growing risks to the economy posed by a slowdown in consumer spending. Although many of the major UK macroeconomic indicators remain health in comparison to pre-referendum forecasts, rising inflation as a result of weakness in sterling looks to finally be constraining spending, which is likely to act as a brake on economic growth.
Key Topics Covered:
1. Executive Summary
2. Political Outlook
3. Withdrawal Process and Negotiations
4. Economic and Business Implications
