Brexit

Implications for PE of the UK leaving the EU

On March 30, 2019, the UK is set to leave the European Union. The decision will have potentially far-reaching consequences for trade relations between the EU and the UK, and thus, implications for private equity, venture capital and infrastructure funds.

At Invest Europe, we monitor negotiations between the EU and the UK and analyse the possible repercussions on marketing funds, raising capital and operating across Europe.

Our aim is to provide technical, legal and political insight of the ramifications of Brexit as well as practical advice on pertinent issues, including fund location, access to investor capital, and recruitment and retention of international talent.

To that end, we are creating a wide range of resources to enable fund managers to make informed and timely choices on making preparations. As talks between the EU and UK advance, we will continue to update these resources regularly and investigate ways to extend the practical support we offer to members.
