Welcome to Graham

In the next few years, your business will face many risks in the European Union, but these will also be opportunities for the well-informed.  However, the greatest risk may flow from the consequences of `Brexit’: A country that is haemorrhaging influence in Europe and is also addicted to capital inflows to sustain its living standards will be at grave risk. 

If you do business in (and with) Britain, you must work through the implications of the Prime Minister's risky strategy to achieve a  Brexit that seems very `hard' to many observers. But EU27 will not escape consequences though the strategic implications of the Rome Declaration by the Heads of State/Government of EU27 on the EU’s 60th anniversary flowed past without much comment. That oversight may easily turn out to be an error. Should conventional pro-EU governments emerge from the 2017 elections, then the Rome Declaration may have real substance.  The 2015 Five Presidents Report would then signpost the way to Completing Economic and Monetary Union – with profound consequences for Europe’s financial system and markets.
