Financial Institutions Sentiment Survey 2017


UK economic resilience, the future relationship of the UK and Europe, and the business implications of cybercrime are focus areas in this year’s survey results.

Our second annual Financial Institutions Sentiment Survey shows firms are confident that the UK economy will maintain its resilience into 2017, and are looking to growth strategies for the coming 12 months.

We surveyed 122 senior financial services executives across our shared marketplace, on pertinent industry topics ranging from: the UK economy to the impacts of the UK exiting the EU, plus how firms are dealing with technological innovation and the regulatory landscape.

Download the full results to discover:

  • Respondents top concerns around financial firms' UK operations for the coming 12 months
  • Views on the biggest impacts and potential benefits of the future UK and EU relationship
  • If they believe that regulatory reform has gone too far – or not far enough
  • How financial services firms are responding to cybercrime

Watch the short video interviews with Lloyds Bank experts Edward Thurman, Managing Director, Head of Financial Institutions and Oliver Knight, Managing Director, Head of Group, Government and Regulatory Solutions to hear their views on the results.
