With Brexit clouding outlook, U.S. payrolls to tilt focus back to Fed -  Permanent Portfolio(PRPFX) newsWith Brexit clouding outlook, U.S. payrolls to tilt focus back to Fed

Dawn breaks behind the Houses of Parliament and the statue of Winston Churchill in Westminster, London, BritainBy Hugh Lawson LONDON (Reuters) - Investors will start to peek beyond the Brexit-dominated headlines in the coming week to gauge the outlook for the global economy, and what impact an expected rebound in U.S. job creation will have on central banks eyeing looser policy. Britain's shock vote to leave the European Union has cast a cloud of doubt over the world economic outlook that is unlikely to clear for months to come as economists - and central banks like the U.S. Federal Reserve - see how the referendum result impact on hard data. Much of the media focus in Europe is likely to be on the political bloodletting as Britain's ruling Conservative Party, also known as the Tories, pick a new leader.



London bankers face Brexit choice: lobby or leave -  Permanent Portfolio(PRPFX) newsLondon bankers face Brexit choice: lobby or leave

The Canary Wharf financial district is seen in east LondonBy Sinead Cruise and Lawrence White LONDON (Reuters) - A week after Britons voted themselves out of the European Union, many London-based bankers and their employers face two options if they are to secure their futures: lobby or leave. Some investment banks, anxious not to stir speculation of an exodus from the historic City of London and its modern counterpart at Canary Wharf, have given out "business as usual" messages since last week's shock referendum result. The alternative for banks and bankers, growing increasingly insecure in an information vacuum that has developed since the June 23 vote, is to get out.



Fed's Fischer watching how quickly Brexit unfolds: CNBC -  Permanent Portfolio(PRPFX) newsFed's Fischer watching how quickly Brexit unfolds: CNBC

U.S. Federal Reserve Vice Chair Stanley Fischer addresses The Economic Club of New York in New YorkThe U.S. economy has shown signs of improvement in recent weeks but the Federal Reserve expects it will take some time before it can assess the impact of Britain's vote to leave the European Union, Fed Vice Chair Stanley Fischer said on Friday. A June 3 report showing a sharp slowdown in hiring during May and the risks around Britain's June 23 Brexit vote have raised concerns at the Fed over whether the U.S. economy was ready for more interest rate increases. More recent economic data has eased some of those concerns, but Fischer gave no steer on when the Fed might raise rates.

A British flag flutters in front of a window in London,When British voters shocked world markets by voting to leave the European Union last week, emerging markets assets seemed among the most vulnerable to a full-on retreat to safe havens from riskier investments.

"Janet Yellen has made it clear that events outside of the U.S. will have a bearing on the Fed’s decision making and she was explicit about the risk that she thought Brexit would pose," said Viktor Szabo, Senior Investment Manager at Aberdeen Investment Management.



Mondelez's bid may find gaps in Hershey's armor -  Permanent Portfolio(PRPFX) newsMondelez's bid may find gaps in Hershey's armor

Hershey's chocolate bars are shown in this photo illustration in EncinitasBy Lauren Hirsch and Lisa Baertlein NEW YORK/LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - An elaborate structure put in place to preserve Hershey Co's ties to its local community has been roiled by scandal, creating an opening that Mondelez International Inc seized on to launch a $23 billion for the chocolate giant. While Hershey's board of directors unanimously rejected Mondelez's offer on Thursday, its once impenetrable defenses are now looking weaker due to an investigation into the charitable trust that controls it, as well as controversy facing the Pennsylvania Attorney General (AG), who also has a say in any change in Hershey Co's ownership. The Hershey Trust, set up by the company's eponymous founder a century ago, holds 81 percent of the company’s voting stock and without its approval, a sale is impossible.
