I've no worry about Brexit, says boss of property firm

By Georgina Stubbs

Brexit is nothing to worry about and there will be a deal between the UK and the EU because they "need each other", the chairman of the Westfield Corporation has said.

Sir Frank Lowy made the comments as European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker said he was recommending the leaders of the remaining 27 EU states give the green light to the start of trade talks next week.

The billionaire property developer collected his knighthood from the Queen for his services to business and philanthropy in what he said was a "wonderful day" at Windsor Castle.

After the investiture ceremony, when asked whether he was worried about Brexit, he said: "Not from day one was I concerned, because I felt that whatever form it will be, there will be a deal between the EU and the UK because they need each other - it just has to change."
