We've just finally sold a house in UK and planned to pay off some high yielding properties to live on the income prior to getting our super. Brexit and the impact on the pound may well crush these plans. Not long ago we went through a similar thing with the Scottish referendum to leave the UK. It just goes to show that no matter how well you think you've planned unforeseen political events can have a huge impact on your investing and overall financial position. We'll have to see what happens with Brexit, and either way I'm sure we'll be fine. Reminds me though about the importance of not being too financially exposed. You think you've covered all scenarios and a curve ball comes along.
