Brexit location strategy
Navigating through uncertainty and change
What does Brexit mean for the location strategy of businesses in the Netherlands and the rest of Europe?
June 2016’s leave vote marks a historic shift in Britain’s place in the world with profound implications for the climate for business in the UK. The UK vote to leave the EU signifies the start of an untested negotiation process with unknown consequences for individuals and organisations.
It is these unknown consequences and uncertainty that make corporates with subsidiaries in the UK re-evaluate their location, especially when it comes down to European Headquarter (EHQ) functions.
