Brexit brings about biggest Asian investment into the UK.

The allure of investing into the UK has not dampened it seems.  Softbank, a Japanese telecommunications group, have agreed a price of £24bn to acquire ARM holdings, a technology company who develops computer chips for iPhone.

The fall in sterling and rise in the yen could be the reason the technology firm has decided to invest in the UK.  Are the Japanese seeing an opportunity that others are missing?  Or could it be the fact that technology is somewhat insulated from some of the doom predicted from brexit compared to other business industries?
