Sterling to Euro Exchange Rate

The Pound Euro (GBP/EUR) exchange rate is inching lower for a third consecutive day . With the UK economy expected to contract -11.3% in 2020 and UK public sector borrowing to hit £400 billion.This will be the largest budget deficit in peacetime ever in the UK.
The Euro was supported by news that France is easing lockdown restrictions.

The Pound has been gradually rising against the Euro since September – but as Brexit deadlines get closer it looks like the two sides still have plenty to sort out.

Dominic Bunning, Head of European FX Research at HSBC this week said that should the UK fail to reach a Brexit trade agreement with the EU, the Pound could well fall to parity with the Euro.
Even if a Brexit trade deal is agreed – HSBC do not see a good future for Sterling because of the greater costs of doing business and the effects of Covid on the economy. They say that value of the Pound must decline in value to entice international investors to divert capital into the UK.

HSBC forecast that the Pound-to-Euro exchange rate will be €1.11 by year-end 2020. By mid-2021 they forecast a fall in Sterling to €1.09.

An alternative view is held by Dr Savvas Savouri, Chief Economist at Toscafund Asset Management – who is forecasting the pound to rise as high as €1.30 in the event of a Brexit deal

Currency fluctuations can make it a nerve-wracking time for anyone planning to exchange large amounts of Sterling or Euro in the next few months.
They will be always wondering when is a good time to buy?

Using a Currency Exchange company can remove some of the uncertainty. Crucially, they
can enable you to fix an exchange rate as much as 12 months in advance of a transfer. So – for example- if the current exchange rate suits your future house purchase budget it would make sense to fix the rate now.
