So Britain is leaving the European Union, the world is once more altered, and a new word has joined the English language. By now, you’ve probably read lots of commentary, either positive or negative, on the impact of Brexit. We aren’t going to do the same. Why? For one, we can’t predict the future and don’t know what the long-term impact will be, and secondly, what happens in Britain, China, Greece or any other country is really not relevant to you. This is not to stay that Brexit and other world developments will not result in shocks to your portfolio, because they will. However, there is something more paramount that you need to pay attention to at this moment and it is RISK.
