The British public's expectations for inflation over the next 12 months edged up in August, a survey for Citi by polling company YouGov (LSE: YOU.L - news) showed on Friday. Households' expectations for inflation in a year's time rose to 2.6 percent for August from 2.5 percent in July, matching July's official reading for consumer price inflation. The Brexit vote in June 2016 led to a big fall in the value of sterling, which has pushed up inflation, gnawing at consumers' disposable income this year.
British consumer morale improved slightly in August but remained subdued overall as households became gloomier about their finances, a survey showed on Friday. The monthly consumer confidence index from pollster YouGov and consultancy Cebr rose to 107.6 from 107.2 in July, aided by an increase in its measures of job security and house prices. "Although this month's consumer confidence figures bring good news, they have to be placed in context – they have not yet returned to where they were ahead of the election," YouGov analyst Stephen Harmston said.
British consumer confidence steadied last month after falling sharply in the aftermath of June's inconclusive national election, but it still marked the weakest two months in four years, a survey published on Monday showed. Pollster YouGov and the Centre for Economics and Business Research (Cebr) consultancy said its consumer confidence index crept back up to 107.3 in July from 107.1 in June.
The British public's expectations for inflation over the next 12 months eased slightly in July, according to a survey on Tuesday that may ease worries among Bank of England officials about underlying price pressures in the economy. The Citi/YouGov (LSE: YOU.L - news) report showed year-ahead inflation expectations slipped in July to 2.5 percent from 2.6 percent in June. "There is ... no sign of above-target headline inflation having 'adverse consequences for inflation expectations', which would require immediate action," economists from Citi said, quoting the minutes from the BoE (Shenzhen: 000725.SZ - news) 's June rate-setting meeting.
Almost half of British exporters have not reviewed their sales strategy in the year since Britain voted to leave the European Union, potentially leaving them exposed to losses, a survey by Lloyds Banking Group showed on Friday. The EU bought 44 percent of Britain's good and services exports in 2015 and many employers are worried about the risk of new barriers to trade with the bloc after Brexit. "Wait-and-see is not really an adequate strategy for exporters," said Clive Higglesden, a banker from a division of Lloyds that provides services to firms selling overseas.

British consumer confidence plunged during the political crisis sparked by Prime Minister Theresa May's election flop, hitting the sales of general retailers such as Debenhams just as shoppers' spending power is undermined by the pound's fall. Two major surveys showed confidence among British consumers and retailers had fallen back to levels last seen in the wake of the shock 2016 Brexit vote which thrust Britain's $2.5 trillion economy onto an uncertain path. Polling firm YouGov (LSE: YOU.L - news) said it expected economic growth to fall sharply over the coming months while the Confederation of British Industry said retailers were downbeat about July.
Research from YouGov (LSE: YOU.L - news) and the Centre for Economics and Business Research (Cebr) showed the hung parliament produced a sharp fall similar to that seen following the referendum a year ago. Two key factors were a decline in optimism over house prices and a "continuing slow puncture of people's household financial situations", the report said. The consumer confidence measure fell from 109.1 prior to the election result to 105.2 in the 12 days afterwards, compared to a fall from 111.9 to 104.3 following the vote on EU membership.
Britain's messy election outcome and a weakening of the housing market have caused a sharp of loss of confidence among consumers, leaving the country dependent on exports to avoid a recession, according to a survey published on Tuesday. An index of consumer confidence produced by polling firm YouGov (LSE: YOU.L - news) fell back to just above levels last seen just after last year's shock referendum decision to leave the European Union. "Our preliminary assessment is that economic growth will fall sharply over the coming months and the country will only be saved from recession by strong international trade," said Douglas McWilliams, deputy chairman at the Centre for Economics and Business Research which produces the index with YouGov.
The British public's expectations for inflation over the next 12 months rose only slightly in June, a survey for Citi by polling company YouGov showed, in welcome news for Bank of England policymakers who are holding off on raising interest rates. "Expectations are close to long-run averages, but strong upward momentum that would call for urgent monetary tightening is absent, in our view," Citi economist Christian Schulz said in a note to clients on Friday. Despite Britain's official inflation rate hitting a nearly four-year high of 2.9 percent in May, respondents to the poll said they expected inflation next June to be 2.62 percent, a 0.05 percentage-point rise from last month's survey.
