Pension surge in run up to EU vote

Doom-mongers have warned of an economic freefall if Britain votes Leave, with David Cameron highlighting a series of worst-case scenarios, dubbed Project Fear by the Leave camp. 

However, analysis of investors’ behaviour shows no signs of nervousness, with money placed into pensions and other investments so far in 2016 up 128 per cent on last year. 

A survey of 20,000 customers by online investment firm True Potential Investor found that, in the first four months of 2016, investors ploughed almost 2.3 times as much into funds as they did in the whole of 2015.
