Uncertainty over how the dispute would be resolved in the one-month deadline set by Washington will reinvigorate a hunt for haven assets in a world already hampered by slowing growth. An easy bet will be to short the expected losers: risk-sensitive currencies from Asia to South America, they say. “To be honest, I thought the dollar would be rising at a much faster pace than this -- markets were pricing in a Goldilocks environment and they were clearly wrong,” said Stephen Miller, an adviser at asset manager GSFM and a former head of fixed income at BlackRock Inc.’s Australian business.

The world's oldest travel group, Thomas Cook, jumped 4.1 percent on the small-cap index.

The FTSE 100, which earns more than two-thirds of its earnings in U.S. dollars, added 0.6 percent on its best day in a week - and the FTSE 250 was up 0.1 percent.

Britain's biggest insurer, Prudential, has transferred 36 billion pounds in customer assets to its new Luxembourg subsidiary ahead of Brexit, it said on Wednesday, as the company reported a six percent rise in operating profit. Insurers and banks have been shifting hundreds of billions of pounds in assets to European Union subsidiaries regardless of the form Brexit takes, reversing decades of European financial market integration and chipping away at the City of London’s dominance. British Prime Minister Theresa May suffered a second, heavy parliamentary defeat on the withdrawal deal she struck with the EU on Tuesday, leaving open the possibility of an abrupt, economically damaging Brexit without a transition arrangement.
Britain's financial sector will continue to function properly whatever form Brexit takes, a junior minister said on Tuesday, though the head of an industry body said it would back proposals to avert Britain leaving the EU without a withdrawal deal. Britain is due to leave the European Union next month, but has not yet agreed a divorce settlement with the bloc, creating uncertainty and fears about a potentially disorderly departure. "We are very focused at the Treasury for preparing for any outcome," junior finance minister Robert Jenrick told the annual conference of the Association of British Insurers.
The FTSE 100 closed 0.1 percent higher, lagging other major European bourses where investors took comfort from U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to delay raising tariffs on Chinese imports. Lloyd's of London insurer Hiscox, which recently joined the FTSE 100, added 3 percent after reporting a profit for the year that beat market expectations. The pound gained after European Council President Donald Tusk said delaying Brexit beyond the planned March 29 exit date would be a "rational solution" as there was no majority in the British parliament to approve a divorce deal.
Britain's wholesale insurance brokers got a clean bill of health from the markets watchdog on Wednesday, providing some relief for an industry already spending millions of pounds on Brexit. London's insurance market, which spans the Lloyd's of London market and brokers such as Aon, Willis Towers Watson, JLT and Marsh, controlled £60 billion in gross written premiums in 2017. The Financial Conduct Authority announced a review in November 2017, saying there were concerns about how large players place business to earn larger fees.
