Exchange Rate in United Kingdom
The British Pound experienced notable volatility from 2013 to 2022. The currency remained relatively stable until 2016, but the Brexit referendum triggered a significant depreciation due to uncertainty over the UK's economic future. Brexit negotiations and the COVID-19 pandemic added further instability, but the Pound gradually stabilized, albeit at weaker levels compared to pre-referendum, reflecting the country's reduced attractiveness to investors and lingering uncertainties over the trading relationship with the EU.
The exchange rate ended 2022 at GBP 1.20 per USD, compared to the end-2021 rate of GBP 1.35 per USD and the rate a decade earlier of GBP 1.66 per USD for the United Kingdom. For more exchange rate information, visit our dedicated page.
