Britain’s relationship with Europe is of increasing importance to UK investors. It is a complex, emotive and highly political debate – and one that we have been frequently asked to comment on from an investment and economic perspective by our investors.
It is also one that is capturing the imagination of Twitter if the poll that we conducted yesterday is anything to go by. More than 18,000 of you took part, with over half expecting the impact to be negative and only 28% positive.
Surprisingly, there isn’t a great deal of objective, independent research on the economic impact of Britain either staying in the EU or coming out. That’s why we commissioned a leading economic research consultancy, Capital Economics, to write a report for us looking at the likely impact of Brexit on the UK, purely from the perspective of economics. We are pleased to share this report with you, which you can access using the link below.
