YouGov’s CEO on the Financial Impact of Brexit and the US Election Outcomes


Britain's EU referendum in June represents “the most significant near-term domestic risk to financial stability,” the central bank has said.

The ‘Brexit’ debate is not losing momentum and with another equally significant event taking place towards the end of this year, the US election, there is plenty for the public to contemplate.

The British Chamber Shanghai invites members to a discussion of these hotly contested topics with Stephan Shakespeare, YouGov founder and CEO and Stanford Professor Doug Rivers, Chief Scientist of YouGov.

As a global market research company with one of the largest amounts of data on consumers, YouGov is a top pollster, with fresh insights on the two most arguably important political contests to affect the future of commerce.

Partnered with The Times in London and with The Economist and CBS in America, YouGov's polling supplies fresh insights going beyond who's ‘winning’. YouGov will provide a deeper view of voters that also helps us to understand the changing market conditions that will shape our economic future. Just a few questions that will be discussed:

  • What do YouGov know about the different voter camps?
  • How do Britons view their relationship with Europe?
  • What are the implications of Brexit for Asia Pacific?
