It is warning that a no-deal Brexit could see legacy incomes drop to £1.2bn lower over the next five years than it would if a deal is reached.Other reasons identified for the decline are a slowdown in the growth of the number of deaths, which has resulted in a slowdown in bequests numbers, along with a slight change in the bequest ‘mix’, with residual numbers lagging cash gifts (pecuniaries).  179 total views,  2 views todaylast_img
