Just over a year on from the referendum vote to leave the EU, only a quarter (25%) of Moneywise users say they’re not worried about Brexit having an impact on their finances, according to our latest poll results.
This is down from the third (34%) who said they weren’t worried back in February when MPs voted in favour of activating Article 50 – the Brexit trigger.
The 25% figure is, however, an increase from the 21% who said they weren’t concerned immediately following the Brexit vote in June 2016.
Of those who are concerned about the financial impact of Brexit, interest rates remaining low is still consumers’ biggest concern, receiving 24% of the votes. This was followed by falling investment and annuity rates impacting pensions (17%).
This echoes February’s poll results where 18% said they were most concerned about the impact on their savings, while 17% were worried about their pensions.
In contrast, in the weeks following the referendum vote, pensions were the biggest worry for Moneywise readers, receiving 28% of the votes, followed by falling savings rates with 21% of the votes.
One in 10 (14%) are also still mostly concerned by the devaluing of the pound affecting exchange rates when they go on holiday. This is the same percentage of people as our February poll result, but an increase on the 8% who were most worried by this element of their finances in June 2016.
