  • Morgan Stanley says weaker growth looks set in for the long haul once the UK formally leaves the EU.
  • The average quarterly growth rate since the third quarter of 2016 was about 0.4%, which looks set to continue until at least the fourth quarter of 2020, economists at the bank said. 
  • In the three years before the referendum, that rate was about 0.6%.

Brexit has been the key driver of UK economy, and lately it hasn’t been good. 

Specifically, growth has been hit by weaker domestic demand, a trend that analysts at Morgan Stanley say looks set in for the long haul once the UK formally leaves the EU.
