A Risk Manager’s Account and Lessons Learned From the Brexit Vote
On Thursday June 23, 2016, I woke up two hours ahead of my usual 5am alarm with a knot in my stomach. Normally I would have gone for a morning workout but not today, I took 15 minutes to meditate and attempt to alleviate the queasy feeling my gut before getting ready, grabbing a cup of coffee and driving to the office. I hardly sipped my coffee on the way in, my heart rate was already elevated and my mind was racing. Every possible scenario of what could happen today ran through my mind over and over.
