Key Quotes

“Given wide range of Brexit outcomes, we think the risks around those forecasts are more important than the numbers themselves.”

“In a hard Brexit scenario, CIO forecast GBP/USD could fall to 1.15 and EUR/GBP rise to close to 1. Even in a less bad scenario during the run-up to a general election or second referendum, GBP could still drop from current levels.”

“However, CIO would also caution against outright selling the pound beyond a few weeks’ time. The currency remains undervalued on purchasing power parity terms, which makes it an unattractive sell over a multi-year horizon.”

“Instead, looking for long-term investment opportunities at GBP/USD levels of 1.24 and below should be the preferable long-term strategy.”
