GBP and SGD in the Markets

When determining the best time to make a foreign exchange transaction, in this case the GBP vs SGD, you should pay attention to the recent market trends for both currencies.

Pound Sterling (GBP)

With the Bank of England holding interest rates steady amid signs of a recovery in the health of the UK economy following the general election, the pound is showing strength against most currencies early in 2020.

In the post UK election euphoria the pound rose to over 1.33 USD and 1.20 EUR but has since dropped back over the uncertainty of what sort of trade deal the UK can realistically negotiate with Europe over the next 11 months.

GBP has given up all of those election result gains as Mr Johnson pledged to outlaw any extension to the UK’s post-Brexit transition period at the end of next year. It appears the Brexit volatility in the pound is set to continue for the foreseable future.

Singapore Dollar (SGD)

At the end of March, Singapore's central bank eased its monetary policy, as widely expected, with the city-state's bellwether economy bracing for a deep recession due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The MAS said it would adopt a zero percent per annum rate of appreciation of the policy band starting at the prevailing level, currently slightly below the mid-point of the policy band.

The markets viewed this annoucement as showing the MAS has kept some fire-power in reserve and could intervene again to lower the SGD.

NAB told Bloomberg TV that it sees a recovery in Asian currencies in the 2nd half of the year if the coronavirus comes under control.

Overall, it was a mixed 2019 for the Singapore dollar, with small gains (<2 percent) against the euro and Australian dollar, but small losses against the US dollar and pound.

How to get Best GBP to SGD 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.
