Pound Sterling - Australian Dollar Forecasting

NAB have revised upwards their pound sterling forecasts now expecting the GBP/USD rate to be at US$1.47 by June 2022, up from their previous forecast of US$1.39. For 2020, it sees GBP at US$1.36 by year-end, up from a predicted US$1.30.

The Australian dollar (AUD) climbed to 73 US cents in August, the highest level since December 2018, amid broad-based US dollar softness. Any news that will fuel optimism of a global economic rebound once the pandemic is under control is likely to underpin positive sentiment and help the AUD to rally. Having broken 72 US cents, the door is now open for the AUD to push toward 75 US cents in the coming months. The Sterling (GBP) sell-off continues as mounting Brexit fears weigh on the embattled currency. Trade negotiations have stalled heightening fears a “no deal” divorce will eventuate. With risk sentiment faltering and Brexit concerns escalating we expect the pound will remain under pressure as we move toward the self imposed October trade deal deadline.

How to get Best GBP to AUD Exchange Rates

All foreign exchange providers charge a fee for providing their service and this fee is usually contained within the exchange rate margin (or difference to the mid-rate).

The transaction margin you end up being charged can be considerably reduced by around a few percent (of total amount being exchanged) for travel money and possibly over 5% to 6% when sending money. The exact potential savings depends on the currencies being exchanged and the amount you are transferring and if you are willing to shop around.

Our real-time foreign transfer and travel money/cards comparison calculators make shopping around easy and help you calculate how much you can save.
