Impact of Brexit on Consumer Financial Services

IRN Research map out consumer spending, income and savings for the next six years

The UK has voted for Brexit by a narrow margin. Assuming we do actually leave the EU what are the implications for consumer finance? The Impact of Brexit on Consumer Financial Services presents three scenarios for the future course of consumer incomes, spending and savings. The non-Brexit future is compared and contrasted with one where the UK negotiates an EEA-style trade arrangement with the EU and one where the UK negotiates a WTO-styles trade deal.

The market research report argues the UK will suffer economic damage because of Brexit, with most of the impact felt in 2017 and 2018, which, assuming a new trade deal is completed by 2018, will be the years of maximum economic uncertainty.
