Brexit backers hit by big losses

Shore Capital, having donated £25,000 to Vote Leave in support of withdrawal from the EU in the UK's 2016 referendum, saw its value drop by more than £10 million, which reduced the value of chairman and substantial Tory donor Howard Shore's 41 percent share by more than £4 million. [2]


Shore Capital donated £25,000 on 11 May 2016 to Vote Leave, the eurosceptic campaign which successfully convinced British voters to leave the EU on 23 June 2016. [3]
