Post-Brexit Currency Considerations for International Clients

Posted on July 4, 2016 by VINGT Paris

In the wake of the Brexit decision, many of our clients and colleagues have had a number of questions for us regarding our predictions for the currency market and predictions for the real estate market.

Brexit - International Property Buyers

Many buyers and sellers may think this is not the time to buy or sell because of sterling’s problems and widespread economic uncertainty.

It remains to be seen whether the enforced pause will exchange rates becalmed. That could turn out to be the case but it’s hard to imagine investors regaining any real enthusiasm for the euro or the pound. It is easier to visualise a steady, if gentle, downward pressure on the pair between now and the moment Article 50 is activated. Sterling is at the greatest risk, especially after the Bank of England governor hinted on Thursday at the possibility of yet-lower interest rates and renewed quantitative easing.
