Pound to euro exchange rate: Pound to euro soars - What is the highest pound to euro rate?

The pound to euro exchange rate has been subject to extensive change throughout Brexit, from the day of the referendum vote to today. An exchange rate measures the value of one country’s currency in relation to another currency. But when and what has been the highest pound to euro rate ever recorded?

Despite the EU launching legal proceedings against the UK over the internal market bill, officials in London are increasingly optimistic about a possible Brexit deal.

This is having a positive impact on the pound to euro exchange rate.

A source told the Financial Times: “We’ve gone from about 30 percent chance of a deal to the other way around. I think it’s almost certain we’ll enter the tunnel.”

The Pound-to-Euro exchange rate bounced off the day's low at 1.0922 to trade at 1.1039 at the time of writing.
