Meaningful Vote Defeat to Drag on FTSE 250

The focus today will be on the meaningful vote, in which PM May will be hoping to get her withdrawal agreement passed parliament. However, given the sizeable number of MPs against her deal, it is highly likely that Theresa May will fail to get her deal approved. As such, while the initial reaction could see the domestically exposed FTSE 250 underperform relative to the FTSE 100, much of this will depend on what happens next. As a reminder, a weaker GBP tends to benefit most of the international companies that make up the FTSE 100. The reason being is that 2/3 of the revenue generated among FTSE 100 companies are from overseas. Consequently, repatriated profits are worth more in Sterling terms when the Pound drops.

In the immediate aftermath of the Brexit referendum, the hardest hit sectors had been financials, housebuilders, retail, travel and leisure firms, falling on average by 21%.
