“In the event of a deal, we believe EUR/GBP will move significantly lower towards 0.86 supported by investors pricing out the Brexit risk premium, vaccine-driven reflation and the UK outperforming the euro area. In the event of no deal, we expect EUR/GBP to move towards but remain below parity, targeting 0.97.”

“We believe the new ‘equilibrium’ exchange rate will become clearer in the new year when we know more.”
