What happens if markets do take a downturn as some have predicted – what will be the short and long term implications for my investment?


Old Mutual Wealth’s’ Investment Division view:

The equity market, and shares of domestically orientated small- and medium-sized companies in particular, would probably weaken as a leave from the EU shaves about 1% off UK economic growth. Demand from companies and consumers would likely ebb amid uncertainty over what a post-Brexit Britain would actually look like, at least in the short term.
