In Conversation: What’s next for Sterling now that Britain has voted for Brexit

By HiFX   /     Jun 29, 2016  /     Europe  /     , , , , ,

Welcome to In Conversation, foreign exchange insights and discussions from HiFX to support businesses that send or receive international payments.


After months of uncertainty, the UK has voted to leave the EU. This unexpected result had an immediate impact on the markets, with the Pound dropping to a 31 year low against the Dollar. While this is now showing some signs of stabilising, we are only at the beginning of a much longer journey that could continue to create downward pressure on Sterling.

What happens next will very much depend on whether we manage to negotiate a “good exit” or not.

Join the HiFX Economists as they discuss the implications of all this and what to look out for in the coming weeks when planning international payments for your business:
