NEW YORK, March 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Brexit means Brexit, but it may also be bullish. That was the key takeaway from participants, speakers and guests at our Deal Economy UK conference, hosted by The Deal, a business unit of TheStreet, Inc. (NASDAQ: TST), a deep-dive into the impact of Britain's decision to leave the European Union on mergers, buyouts, business and investment.
"Suddenly, with two giant, albeit rejected takeover bids, Europe doesn't seem all that bad as a place to invest," said TheStreet's Jim Cramer, who conducted the day's keynote interview with Steve Krouskos, the Global Vice Chair for Transaction Advisory Services at EY. "Suddenly, the euro seems a little more stable and with the downfall of the so-called uber-nationalist party in the Netherlands, perhaps politically, suddenly Europe feels like the good old days when you didn't have to think about who was running the government."
Additional speakers who shared their perspective and insight at the conference included The Right Honourable Lord Lamont of Lerwick, The Right Honourable John Redwood, Michel De Fabiani, Franco-British Chamber of Commerce & Industry, Tristan Nagler, Aurelius Investments Limited, Jim Strang, Hamilton Lane and Christophe Bavière, Idinvest Partners.
