As you can see, even the talk about leaving the UK from the European Union, namely to discuss the upcoming referendum next year, has a negative impact on the credit rating of the country, experts said Citigroup.
For example, the rating agency Standard & Poor's has revised its forecast for the UK credit rating «AAA» to negative. At the same time, the agency noted that this is not the limit, if there are stronger signals that the output of the UK from the EU is possible in the medium term, it is the country's credit rating will be lowered by one notch further.
Economists at Citigroup point out that there is a possibility that the rating agency Moody's also lowered its forecast credit rating of the United Kingdom in 2016.
Now more and more people in the country are of the opinion that it is necessary to accelerate the referendum in order to put an end to the uncertainty, whiling away imposes a negative impact on confidence in the economy and economic prospects.
