The referendum vote was a leave vote, and Morgan Stanley reckons the process of the UK leaving the bloc will be initiated by ba new PM later this year, ahead of two years of negotiations on , among other things, trade deals.
"Our base case is that Scotland will vote for independence and institute a new currency at that point (2019)," JP Morgan economist Malcolm Barr said in a note to clients on Wednesday.
