    Schroders Quickview: Greece votes “no” and enters limbo

With 61.3% voting ‘no’, Prime Minister Tsipras has arguably increased his support compared to the 36% won in the last legislative election. In our view, the referendum result dramatically increases the risk of Grexit to around 75% due to the large number of obstacles that stand in the way of a new bailout.
