“Markets and investors around the world were engulfed in the chaos following what many saw as the unexpected result of the UK’s June 23rd vote.  Volatility was up significantly during the month. The S+P 500 index was up just 0.3 per cent.  Emerging markets were up 3.94 per cent while developed markets ex-US declined 2.87 per cent.  There is still uncertainty in the markets due to questions on when and how Brexit changes will be implement and the many changes happening in UK political parties" says Deborah Fuhr, managing partner at ETFGI.
