40% of IFAs back Tories

Forty per cent of IFAs intend to vote Conservative in the general election

while 14 per cent will opt for Labour but a massive 27 per cent are still

undecided, according to a straw poll carried out by Money Marketing.

MM asked 100 IFAs from around the country which party they will vote for

and which party they believe is best for savings and investments.

The Tories scored 61 per cent as best party on savings and investment,

much higher than the 40 per cent who said they will vote Conservative.

Fourteen per cent said they would vote Labour while 17 per cent said Labour

was better for savings and investments.

On voting intentions, the LibDems were third, with 7 per cent and the

Greens polled 3 per cent. Abstentions were 6 per cent.

Apart from Labour and Conservative, no party, including the LibDems,

received more than one vote as being best for savings.
