In this quarter's Investor Barometer survey, the majority of our respondents (68%) think it’s likely that we'll see a recession before the end of the year, regardless of the outcome to Brexit. In the event of a recession, 54% believe that the Bank of England will not offer negative interest rates.
As the Brexit Juggernaut rolls on, we asked for your predictions once again, following Boris Johnson’s appointment as Prime Minister. 56% agreed that we will ultimately see a No Deal Brexit, with almost a quarter of you (24%) expecting to see a Hard Brexit and just 12% anticipating no Brexit at all.
With Brexit rescheduled for 31st October, and the economic uncertainties it brings, we look forward to the predictions for the future in the Q4 Investor Barometer survey that we'll issue to our investors in early November.
