In contrast to many opinions that we have read the results were mostly positive, with two thirds of those surveyed believing Trump’s win would either be positive or have no impact on business with just 18% predicting a negative outcome. This shows that UK SMEs are putting negative sentiments behind them and focusing on trying to grow and develop their businesses.
Across the country more SMEs surveyed were mostly in favour of a soft Brexit (42%) compared to hard (33%). However, in London, those wanting soft Brexit jumped to over half of all those surveyed (54%). This indicates that London SMEs are keener to keep closer ties with the European Union post-Brexit than the rest of the UK.
