BREXIT’S IMPACT ON US AND GLOBAL CAPITAL MARKETS

By Jeffrey Riback, President of Toppan Vite New York

It was stunning news on June 23 when the people of the United Kingdom voiced their collective opinion and voted to leave the European Union (EU). While the long-term ramifications of the British exit—better known as Brexit—cannot yet be accurately forecast, we should pay special attention to this vital moment in European politics and what it means for both US and global capital markets.

Even though we don’t expect Brexit to send US or global markets into a financial crisis like that of 2008, American investors should pay close attention and be prepared to feel the ramifications. While UK and European financial services and banking institutions will likely face the majority of impacts from Brexit, the waves of change could reach American shores.

Background: What led to Brexit?

The Brexit vote was put to the people of the United Kingdom by Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron, ostensibly to quash the notion that the British people—who have often publicly chafed at European Union (EU) membership—wish to actually leave the political and economic alliance.

Cameron and his Conservative Party argued strenuously against leaving the EU, but the nationalistic UK Independence Party (UKIP) and other groups worked to increase anti-EU sentiment among older and working-class Britons. With a 71 percent voter turnout, British voters defied the wishes of their prime minister and voted 52 to 48 percent to withdraw from the EU.

Immediate impacts

The very night of the vote, the British pound dropped 11 percent in value, and though it has recently recovered somewhat, the pound sterling remains down from its pre-Brexit value as well. Since then the pound has plunged to its lowest level since 1985. Investors have found safety in both the dollar and the yen.

While officials in the United States, especially within the Federal Reserve, have downplayed the immediate impact of Brexit on the American economy, global markets went into shock. The Friday immediately after Brexit, American shares dropped 3.6 percent, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 611 points. With such a wild card thrown into European business and politics, uncertainty remains the only certainty as we wait to see what happens.

At a minimum, Brexit is putting the geopolitical and global financial markets at risk, and we can expect to face uncertainty for the next few years. With regards to the European Union, Brexit is terrible timing as they were just recovering from Greece’s recent economic downturn.

The US markets

The United States is one of the biggest investors in the UK with $588 billion in investments across sectors that include banking, manufacturing and real estate. Furthermore, the US employs more than one million people in Britain. The nature of Great Britain’s and America’s relationship means that the state of one nation is almost guaranteed to impact the other.

A recent assessment of the US’s financial stability, released by the Office of Financial Research (OFR), suggested that the greatest impacts to US banks and nonbanks (such as life insurers and broker-dealers) will be long-term, and investors should expect not only months but potentially years of uncertainty and volatility as a result of the Brexit vote. The OFR’s midyear report also found that Brexit severely damaged global investor confidence, but the indirect effects will have less-predictable impacts on our economies. Ultimately, US financial stability has been in the OFR’s medium range of risk since December 2015, but Brexit pushed it that much higher.

As the OFR outlines, the most severe scenario of implications to US financial stability from Brexit would show negative impacts to trade, financial exposures and confidence. If there were to be a recession in the US or throughout the European Union, there would be less of a demand for US exports, which total three percent of the GDP. While this wouldn’t likely threaten US stability, it would contribute to slowed growth. Most importantly, a drop in investor confidence could lead to even lower interest rates for an extended period of time and could even lead to a depreciation of US assets such as equities.

Impacts to the UK

Experts from Barclays firmly believe that by the end of 2016, the UK will have slipped into a recession, and growth will fall by 0.1 percent, all due to uncertainty and lack of confidence surrounding what the future holds. Barclays’ analysis of Brexit’s impact on the UK can be summarized as follows:

  1. The UK will be facing recession before the end of 2016.
  2. Due to a lack of business confidence, a direct result of Brexit, there will be delays in spending, leading to stunted growth. Barclays predicts business confidence to drop even more as there are still plenty of unknowns regarding how Brexit will play out over the next two years.
  3. Consumer spending will drop dramatically
  4. Savings accounts will dry up as consumption rises faster than income.
  5. Consumer purchases of real estate and cars will drop to two-year lows.

Global impacts

Looking at the rest of Europe, Brexit will contribute to slowed growth and a decline in confidence, but larger impacts could be minor compared to that of the UK. Meanwhile, third world and emerging markets may take the biggest hit. According to recent research from Barclays, Brexit’s economic impact on Sub-Saharan Africa could be the most concerning. Barclays attributes the continent’s risk from Brexit to the following factors:

  1. Africa’s economies are largely focused on the export of raw materials. With Brexit potentially impacting the global demand for goods, these economies are expected to see slower growth and increased deficits.
  2. Decreased demand will also likely lead to a drop in the price of key commodities such as gold. Two of the world’s 10 biggest gold-producing countries are in Sub-Saharan Africa.
  3. Tourism is expected to slow as many travelers to Africa are from Great Britain and the rest of Europe.
  4. Fewer African workers will be employed by developed nations, which will lead to a decline in financial support sent by the Sub-Saharan nations.
  5. Worst-case scenario: aid from the UK and other European governments could halt due to economic instability.
  6. Brexit is already leading to increased risk aversion, which likely means fewer investments in emerging markets.
  7. Lastly, earnings on Sub-Saharan investments into Europe and the UK will be lower.

Additionally, China’s economy has been slowing for the past year, and Brexit is only contributing to its lag. Meanwhile, Brazil has been plunged into a full-blown crisis. Overall, Europe and the shared global market are facing unpredictable and likely prolonged challenges. Unfortunately for indebted countries such as Greece, Italy and Portugal borrowing costs may increase dramatically.

Potential benefits

All the conversation surrounding Brexit has been focused on the negative, but there are certainly some potential positive benefits. It has been suggested that financial-services organizations based in New York could marginally benefit from Brexit, despite a market selloff. In the short-term some sectors in the US may gain, but more importantly Brexit could help New York gain a firmer foothold against London as the global financial capital. Additionally, if the pound continues to drop, travel to the UK and Europe could be more affordable for Americans.

Looking ahead

The Brexit event will take place over the next two years so we can expect to wait a significant amount of time before we see the full ramifications on US and global markets. Brexit could ultimately lead to a global fall in equity prices due to growing investor fears regarding Brexit’s impact on the UK’s and global economies. Furthermore, the geopolitical impacts of a EU without the UK are hard to imagine. At this point, we just have to wait and see what our world and economies will look like post-Brexit.

Toppan Vite New York is a leading financial printer and technology provider that prides itself on providing a hassle-free experience with remarkably fast turnaround times. A member of the Tokyo-based Toppan Printing Co., Ltd. family – the largest printing and communications group in the world – Toppan Vite is in its third year of operations in the U.S. and continues to enjoy strong growth and expansion in the market. Below is our interview with Jeffrey Riback, President of Toppan Vite New York, who believes the industry has proven its ready for a new kind of player.

Q: Tell us about Toppan Vite and your company’s history?

A: Toppan Vite New York is a leading financial printer and technology provider for mission-critical content, delivering key services for notable mergers and acquisitions, other capital market transactions, regulatory compliance filings and mutual fund documentation.

We are part of Toppan Printing Co., Ltd., the world’s largest printing group, headquartered in Tokyo with approximately US $13 billion in annual sales. Toppan Vite has been a pioneer and trusted partner in the financial markets for three decades, serving the financial, legal and corporate communities with meticulous, responsive service and unparalleled local market expertise and capabilities.

Q: What is your core competence?

A: Toppan Vite’s mission is to deliver hassle-free, financial printing services for issuers, private equity firms, investment companies and their legal and banking advisors. We provide 24/7 service for mission-critical deal document creation, project management, document production and delivery, including typesetting, EDGAR, XBRL, print and e-delivery, with global cross-border capabilities.

Q: You’ve recently released Form 13F on your Hive SEC Self-File platform; tell us a bit more about this update.

A: As technology leaders in the financial printing industry, we are constantly working on providing new SaaS offerings for our clients. Our mission has always been to provide our clients with more effective solutions for their project management, documentation and compliance needs. Form 13F was added to Hive™ SEC Self-file, our self-service EDGAR platform, to allow investment management companies to file each of their ownership reports directly with the SEC.

Q: What advantage does Toppan Vite have over its competitors?

A: Despite our impressive global reach, Toppan Vite New York provides boutique-like services, unmatched by any of our competition in the marketplace. This includes the industry’s only auto pagination feature within a single source typesetting environment, content management technology and virtual data rooms. We offer a client-centric organization that provides a highly-personalized experience – working the way YOU want to work, while helping you achieve your goals. Our client feedback indicates that we consistently provide the best service in the industry.

Q: What can we expect from Toppan Vite in next six months?

A: Toppan Vite will be rolling out updates to our SaaS products on an ongoing basis.

A: Toppan Vite provides hassle-free financial printing services to financial, legal and corporate communities, specifically companies, investment management firms and institutions and their legal and banking advisors. Each group’s needs will vary, yet they are all looking for reliable, accurate and cost-effective financial print services. Legacy printers often force their clients to “work the way they want to work.” Toppan Vite has modernized this process by working as an extension of our client’s team and working the way the client wants to work.

Toppan Vite’s skilled customer service team and state-of-the-art service offerings establish pain points for clients and then erase them. We distilled feedback from clients and lessons learned from the industry to create a streamlined business model that delivers a hassle-free experience with faster, better service. We have hired the best people in the business and empowered them to make immediate decisions and keep projects moving. We cut out bureaucracy, simplify workflow and use next-generation technologies. Our clients speak directly with skilled experts so they can get the right answers, get the job done and get home earlier.

Q: How have advancements in technology changed the financial printing landscape?

A: In the “old days” of financial printing, jobs required multiple drafts with incredibly messy markups, all done by hand. This led to a great deal of time and money spent on changes and copy clarification. It was a long, arduous road to get a final document that could be delivered to shareholders and stakeholders.

Those days are long gone. Advances in technology have put access to information at people’s fingertips in an instant and for that reason people expect their information much faster. When it comes to financial documents and filings, things like component content management systems (CCMS), virtual data rooms and the ability to self-file have made things easier and faster.

Technology has enabled corporations, investment companies, mutual funds, annuities and insurance firms to automate processes and gain efficiencies. The ability to effectively manage content means maximizing efficiencies, managing both regulatory and brand integrity and ultimately saving money. These changes have had tremendous benefits for both corporations and the individual investor.

Beyond providing users with the ability to process proofs in less time, Toppan Vite’s updates allow users the ability to import directly from Excel, providing for improved editing to tabular data and more internal sharing options across the platform.

Toppan Vite has also enhanced ease of use with changes to password security, replacing security images with an “I’m not a robot” checkbox.

Additionally, the update enhances footnotes and punctuation, back screen displays and the users’ ability to include a local footnote in certain instances.

Toppan Printing Co., Ltd., Announces Decision to “GoGreen” by Investing Nearly $100 Million in Constructing a Georgia-based Manufacturing Site for Production of Environmentally Friendly Packaging



Toppan Printing Co., Ltd. (hereafter, Toppan Printing), has taken yet another step forward in its long-term commitment to the U.S. market by announcing its decision to construct a new plant, in Griffin, Georgia’s first eco-friendly park, which will utilize the most innovative technology to produce environmentally friendly packaging. With the launch of the new plant, Toppan Printing will bolster its capacity to supply transparent barrier films, including GL Film, to food, electronics and medical packaging manufacturers in North America and Europe, and further expand its business by taking advantage of the new plant’s location.

Demand for barrier films is expected to grow in the U.S. market, where large structural shifts are taking place in the food packaging industry, such as a need for longer shelf lives brought on by changes in lifestyles, and a steady transition from glass bottles and metal cans to flexible packaging. Due to ever-increasing environmental considerations, Toppan Printing is anticipating further expansion of demand for barrier films in the global packaging market.

Toppan Printing will invest nearly $100 million in the manufacturing site for its “Going Green” initiative and has expanded many of its subsidiaries’ operations throughout the U.S. in the past couple of years. Through the launch in 2013 of Toppan Vite New York—a leading financial printer managing mission-critical content for capital markets transactions, financial reporting and regulatory compliance filings, and investment company and insurance communications—Toppan Printing has strived to bring faster, better service to financial entities in the U.S. market, in an environmentally conscious and technologically forward way. Toppan Vite New York recently completed the largest technology deal in the U.S. for 2014.

Toppan Printing is aiming to commence mass production at its “green” transparent barrier film manufacturing site in March 2016.

Toppan Printing has about 80 subsidiaries in Asia, Europe, and the United States, with combined annual sales of roughly $18 billion.

-GL Film
Toppan Printing began sales of transparent barrier films, including GL Film, in 1986. Today, the company is a major worldwide supplier of barrier films to the global market. “GL Film” is a collective term for original transparent barrier films developed by Toppan Printing. These films have enhanced overseas eco-friendly missions with their excellent reputation not only in Japan, but also in markets such as Europe, North America and Southeast Asia. The wealth of variations suited to different purposes, combined with the world’s highest level barrier performance, is achieved with original vapor deposition technology. Toppan’s GL Film and ongoing vapor deposition technology developments reinforce a top brand in the transparent barrier film market, with the highest possible level of barrier performance. As of January 2014, GL Film is utilized for approximately 15,000 products, in over 40 countries and regions worldwide.
