Allied Irish Bank (GB)'s exclusive survey of business leaders suggests that UK companies believe they have the right strategy to weather the Brexit storm and lay the foundations for long-term, sustainable growth.


The survey of 500 UK executives across industry and commerce reveals a high degree of optimism about the future. Some 72 per cent of respondents, across many sectors, believe that leaving the EU will be positive for their business, and will encourage growth.


Far from building defences against a possible downturn, British firms remain ambitious, with 87 per cent of respondents saying they want to grow their business.


Allied Irish Bank (GB)’s Steps to Growth: Strategy shares insights into the dynamic businesses that will help shape Britain's future, drawn from our survey, our business client relationships and interviews with leading business leaders. The report captures the essence of what motivates UK executives in 2017.
