On 23rd June 2016, more than 17 million voters decided that the United Kingdom should remove itself as a member state of the European Union; a decision that was destined to change the face of British politics forever.
Now, two years on from this historic referendum, the dramatic twists and turns of Britain’s ‘divorce’ from its European partners continue to dominate newspaper headlines and divide opinions amongst people of all ages and backgrounds right across the country.
An important issue for many people in the ‘Brexit’ debate is the impact it is likely to have on the UK’s economy, and by extension, how this is likely to affect their own savings.
To mark the second anniversary of the EU referendum, our June poll asked people if they felt that their approach to their personal finances had changed since the vote.
41% of those who took part claimed that their approach to their finances had not changed at all, while a further 25% also said that they hadn’t but that this might change over the next 12 months.
While 17% of participants said that they felt their personal finances are more stable now, a further 17% agreed that they are now less confident.
