British Pound GBP Forecasts 2021

Forecasts for the British pound dollar change all the time, affected by news events and relative sentiment towards the UK economy. In 2020, GBP exchange rates were driven almost entirely by the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic rather than any fundamentals of the British economy.

What is a good GBP exchange rate?

Whether the pound will rise or drop in the future is a difficult question and the answer really depends on many factors. The best way to consider an exchange rate’s current relative value is to look at GBP’s history against a range of currencies and in particular against the currency you are interested in exchanging it with.
