Europe’s Biggest Investor: Brexit Good for EU

allianz+brexit

Mohamed El-Erian was CEO of Pimco, a legend in the investing world who is now the Chief Economic Adviser to Allianz, the world’s largest insurance and financial services group which is also the largest company in Europe according to Forbes. He has just told a conference of money managers at the FundForum International in Berlin that a Brexit could resolve key issues within the EU.

“There are two fundamental divisions of the EU: There’s the British view — that it’s a super free-trade zone, that it’s a destination. Whereas the Germany-France view is that it’s a means to something else — to an ever closer union. These are fundamentally two very different views on what the EU is about. If the referendum [results in the U.K. remaining in the union], we don’t resolve these different views. It means we are going to have tensions over and over again, because they are pursuing two different objectives, within one institutional agreement. So, ironically, over the longer term, an exit may actually solve one of the basic inconsistencies of the European Union.”

His argument is that Brexit essentially secures the future of the EU, at short-term volatility cost. No one got rich betting against Mohamed El-Erian…

Quote of the Day

Brexit Secretary David Davis on Emily Thornberry’s request for a vote on Article 50:

“What she is trying to wrap up in a pseudo-democratic masquerade, is the most anti-democratic proposal I have heard for some time. She wants to deny the will of the British people and up with that we will not put.”
