"Any celebration about the rebound in August and conclusion that life has returned to 'business as usual' may prove to be a mirage, at least in the longer-term It is unclear when exactly the U.K. will start the likely laborious process of quitting the EU, after its people voted by a margin to quit the economic and political bloc. It also unknown what sort of relationship the U.K. might maintain with the EU once it leaves the bloc."
S&P predicted the longer-term impact of the vote would be felt gradually.
