At PSD, we recently conducted a survey of Chair, CEO, Non-Executive Director and Finance Director clients to assess their views on whether the UK will vote to remain in the EU or leave.


We sent the survey to thousands of people and we received a high response. The result was that 69% of responders support the Remain vote whilst 31% believe that the UK would be better leaving the EU. The survey, unlike the current polls, suggested an overwhelming victory for the Remain campaign.

Whilst PSD's client base covers many different sectors, and we made a particular point of reaching to our clients across all major sectors, there was a notably strong response from the Property sector. We decided to interview two responders, from this sector, one voting to stay in the EU and one voting to leave. They both wished to remain anonymous but nonetheless gave us some fascinating insights into their thinking.

I very much hope that you enjoy this edition and look forward to hearing your views and comments.
