In his paper the author Matthias Raddant reviews the response of the European stock markets to the Brexit referendum. He analyses the correlation of market indices, stock volatility and the special role of stocks from the financial sector. While the impact of the vote was very similar for the stock markets in France, Germany and Spain, in Italy volatility among financial stocks intensified permanently.
