Twitchy about Trump. Fearful about the UK economy. Positive about their own organisations’ prospects. UK managers look ahead to 2017

The majority of UK managers are pessimistic about the UK’s economic prospects for 2017, yet remain resolutely positive about their own business, according to the annual Future Forecast from CMI.   

The key findings

  • Almost two-thirds (65%) of the 1,180 UK managers surveyed for this year’s forecast feel negative about the UK’s economic outlook for the next 12 to 18 months.
  • Half (49%) think Brexit will have a negative impact on economic growth in the next three to five years.
