Riga, Latvia, August 5, 2016, 17:25 / Investments

In July, the prices on global financial markets kept growing for almost all types of assets. The panic of June due to the unexpected results of the referendum concerning the membership of Great Britain in the European Union subsided rather quickly, and investors returned to the market. It can be partly explained by common understanding that the process of Great Britain leaving the EU will be quite long, thus preventing strong negative consequences. The statements of central banks, especially the ECB and Bank of England, regarding their readiness to provide support to financial markets and defuse the effect caused by Brexit, if necessary, played their role as well.

In June, the focus of the market players’ attention was the sessions of main central banks of the world and the UK referendum on the EU membership. However, it is fair to say that the results of central banks’ sessions were of much smaller concern for the investors, since no particular surprises were expected.
