    Schroders Quickview: Greece votes “no” and enters limbo

    The Greek referendum over the weekend returned a resounding “no” to Europe’s bailout offer. 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.

    The Greek crisis has now reached its crescendo. If the referendum this weekend returns a vote to accept the bailout and remain in the eurozone, then the country can start to recover. However, if it rejects the offer and effectively decides to leave, then it will be the beginning of a very painful era in Greece’s history.
