British Pound Before and After Brexit


How has the British Pound moved since the beginning of 2016, during Brexit and now.

Watching how the GBP has changed for those buying Australian dollars has been interesting since Brexit.

Between January 1st 2016 and the 23rd May 2016, one month BEFORE Brexit (23rd June 2016), the GBP experienced an FX drop to every country below of between 7.43% and 14.74%

Between January 1st 2016 and the 30th September 2016, 3 months AFTER Brexit, the drops are between 15.58% and 29.71%

The changes from the week before Brexit to the 30th September 2016 are between 7.23% and 19.33%

These figures from currencyonline.com.au show that about half the FX change was before Brexit with the remainder after Brexit.
