Best Execution – Winter 2016/17
Whether you are elated or have despaired at the events of 2016, there is no doubt that it was a year full of surprises. Not surprisingly then, crystal ball gazing is difficult except to say that the UK government has a long hard road ahead in trying to get everyone on side with the Brexit negotiations, while the US will have to get used to a different kind of President, and forthcoming European elections may confound us further. Whether any of these politicians fulfil their promises is anyone’s guess but there is bound to be disappointment for some.
For those in the City of London, nervousness will linger over its fate as Europe’s major financial services hub and machinations over Brexit could scupper the London Stock Exchange and Deutsche Börse union, which is their third attempt to merge.
One certainty is that the march of regulation will continue.
As we begin the year, I would also like to thank all our readers and wish everyone a very happy and healthy 2017.
