What will the outcome of the most unpredictable UK General Election mean for our currency?

As an unpredictable election looms, how many of the policies will we actually see put in place? What will happen after the election for inwards UK investment? With guaranteed austerity measures committed to by the larger parties, how will this affect growth, consumer confidence and the path of UK interest rates?

With so much uncertainty in the markets the one thing we can be sure of is a more volatile market for the Pound.

Historically a Conservative Government has seen the Pound strengthen in the time shortly after the election but Jamie Jemmeson believes that with each individual party vying to implement strong legislative measures across their term this could be where we see some real currency movements.
