Brokers becoming more negative about post-BREXIT economy

Industry News | 05/12/17

New United Trust Bank research shows a decrease in broker confidence since the EU referendum. A poll carried out by UTB in July 2016, immediately following the Brexit vote, found that 56% of respondents were positive about the UK’s future outside of the EU.
With just over one third (35%) of brokers now taking a positive view of the economic outlook to 2021, it appears that sentiment towards the split has become more negative.

Brokers working in the fields of property and asset finance also believe that the majority of their customers have a negative view of the UK’s economic outlook for the next three years. Just 20% indicated that most of their customers took a positive view whilst 40% believed their customers were neutral.
