On June 24th last year, the UK voted to leave the EU – an unexpected result which sent shockwaves through the markets. In the immediate aftermath, sterling plunged in value – against both the euro and the dollar – and there was a more short-lived fall in the FTSE 100.

But 12 months on, the effects have not been as devastating as many people feared, with many investments benefitting from a ‘Brexit bounce’.

Below we look at the main winners and losers – and ask what the longer-term effects may be as the UK starts to negotiate the terms on which it will eventually leave the EU.
