"Now that the initial shock from the UK’s decision to leave the EU has died down, markets and the wider financial services industry are waiting with bated breath to see how the Brexit negotiations play out. This research report aims to explore what advisers make of the post-Brexit landscape, and how this is feeding in to the retirement and investment advice they give to their clients. With a new government in place to oversee and secure the UK’s withdrawal from the EU, advisers believe this represents a chance to review the programme of pension policy reform set in motion by former chancellor George Osborne.

Money Marketing, in partnership with Scottish Widows, carried out a research project to examine the implications of the Brexit vote for pensions and investment advice. A total of 258 respondents set out their views as part of a comprehensive online survey, which was carried out between 26 July and 8 August 2016. Two-thirds of those surveyed were advisers, with the remainder involved in pensions research or working in roles such as paraplanning or technical support."
