Survey finds advisers evenly divided on Brexit


Intelliflo’s Intelligent Office has found that half (50 per cent) the advisers surveyed would welcome Britain leaving the EU with one in six undecided about whether to stay or go. 

The survey of 169 users also revealed that nearly two thirds (62 per cent) say leaving will have a positive or no effect on the long-term future of the UK and just over a third (34 per cent) say they want to stay part of Europe, while slightly more than a third (38 per cent) say leaving will have a negative effect on the UK.
In terms of the impact leaving would have on their own businesses, the survey found that over a third (37 per cent) believe it will have no impact; almost a quarter (22 per cent) say it would be positive;  around one in six (17 per cent) feel it would be negative and around a quarter (24 per cent) say they don’t understand enough about it yet to have an opinion.
Asked about the impact they believe leaving the EU would have on the wealth of their clients, the survey found that slightly more than one in five (21 per cent) believe it would have an impact on their clients’ wealth but in the short-term only, with one in ten saying it would have a negative impact in the medium to long-term. One in five (20 per cent) don’t believe it would impact on the wealth of their clients, while 18 per cent believe leaving will have a positive impact on their clients’ wealth in the medium to long-term, with just 2 per cent saying it would be positive in the short-term only. Some 29 per cent are, as yet, unsure what impact it would have.
Nick Eatock, Intelliflo’s Executive Chairman comments: “With three months to go to the vote it’s clear there are many advisers who are still in the process of weighing up the benefits of staying or going. However, with half of those we polled saying they will vote ‘no’, it looks like the ‘yes’ campaign have got their work cut out over the coming weeks.”
