The expectation is for the pound to push higher in the coming weeks as Article 50 is triggered but this might only be short-lived. If you have a transfer to consider involving the pound and Swiss Franc the previous expectations for the pound were that it would fall on the Article 50 but this is now being questioned. The belief is that the pound will benefit from certainty over the direction for the UK and negotiations will be perceived to be in the UK’s favour.

What of the Swiss Franc? Well, the Franc is a beneficiary of uncertainty on global markets. The Franc could, therefore, benefit in times of increased global uncertainty but with many economies performing much better and markets appearing to believe better news could be around the corner the Franc might not actually rise. I would believe the pound is going to be the big mover on the GBPCHF pairing, the rate will I believe trade between 1.20 and 1.26.

If you have a transfer to consider involving the pound and Swiss Franc then making some plans in advance ahead of this very volatile period is I believe very sensible. The big Article 50 is days away, the expectation has not been made overly clear. This is the biggest news we have had since the Referendum and should not be ignored. If you have a transfer involving the Swiss Franc and the pound and wish to be kept up to date please speak to me Jonathan by emailing
