Brexit: Is ‘no-deal’ a big deal for PERE and family offices?

A view of Brexit

With the current situation making it more likely that the UK will leave the EU without a deal on 31 October, it’s worth considering what this might mean for the private equity and real estate (PERE) and family office industries – both within the UK and also globally in terms of inward investment into the UK.

This is the focus of the latest article by IQ-EQ's Executive Chairman, Serge Krancenblum, which was published last week by eprivateclient, thewealthnet and WealthBriefing.

In the article, Serge outlines how the looming prospect of a no-deal Brexit has been influencing both PERE fund and family office investment activity and shares what we at IQ-EQ have been witnessing among our own clients in each sphere. He notes rising concerns and cautiousness as well as a consistent dislike of uncertainty, with 'wait and see' proving a widespread approach. He also highlights certain opportunities presented by a no-deal Brexit, concluding that the key is restoring certainty - whatever that certainty may be.
