In this episode, I get Nicholas Garrott’s insider perspective on post-Brexit, the future of the United Kingdom and asset owner European targets, from a macroeconomic expert who served under former London Mayor Boris Johnson’s administration. Garrott now works for Kyklos London. Kyklos London was founded by Dr Gerard Lyons. I ask Nicholas on his thoughts regarding the Bank of England, trade flows, wealth funds and real estate.
