Britons are taking a “business as usual” approach to saving and spending after the EU referendum result, a poll has found, as the majority of those asked said they did not believe Brexit would hit their finances in the coming months.
An Ipsos Mori poll for The Sunday Telegraph found that more than three quarters of consumers believe their personal financial situation will be unchanged or better over the next six months, despite warnings that the economy is slowing as a result of the EU vote.
Almost one in five (18pc) of the 1,000 people surveyed said they believed that their finances would improve over the coming months, against around a quarter who felt their situation would deteriorate.
