Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

Queen Elizabeth II, the UK’s longest-serving monarch, has died at Balmoral in Scotland aged 96, after reigning for 70 years.

Her tenure as head of state spanned post-war austerity, the highs and lows of the economy and markets, the transition from empire to Commonwealth, the end of the Cold War, and the UK’s entry into – and withdrawal from – the European Union.

The UK economy and markets transformed beyond recognition during her reign, and so did the role her nation played in the world. She was, and will be remembered as, a symbol of stability and unity during times of momentous change and Britons will thank her for her decades of service and duty to her nation. Americans will thank her for the special bond she forged with the U.S.

Yesterday, the New York Stock Exchange and the NASDAQ held a moment of silence in recognition of the Queen and it is expected that her funeral will be honored as a public holiday with the London Stock Exchange closed for trading.

Queen Elizabeth was the first monarch to feature on Bank of England banknotes. “Current banknotes featuring the image of Her Majesty The Queen will continue to be legal tender. A further announcement regarding existing Bank of England banknotes will be made once the period of mourning has been observed,” the Bank of England said.

JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon, who met the Queen at Windsor Castle last year, said:

“For many people in the UK and the world over, she has been a constant figure throughout their lifetimes. Many have found reassurance in the stability of her leadership and her enduring sense of duty and service.”

Invstr CEO, Kerim Derhalli said:

“I have grown up in the UK with the Queen as our national north star. During the Queen’s long reign, the world has transformed politically, economically, socially & technologically. The Queen represented an unbroken link between the old world and the new. She demonstrated qualities that transcend the upheavals we have all experienced – humility, duty, dignity, respect for others and humor. She has been a role model for us all in a way that leaders can only hope to match. It is now down to each one of us to learn from and follow her example.”

We at Invstr thank Her Majesty The Queen for her lifetime of service and her unwavering faith in humanity. We extend our sincere condolences to her family.
