Reviewing your pension options in the face of BrexitIt makes sense for British expatriates to adapt their financial planning for their life abroad. By taking advantage of opportunities available for Portuguese residents, you can potentially reduce taxation and gain more flexibility than UK-based alternatives.
Does the same apply to pensions: if you are permanently living in Portugal, should you bring your UK pensions with you?

Pound US dollar exchange rate surges as USD sentiment plummetsThe pound punched higher yesterday, particularly against the US dollar which suffered a dramatic fall from grace amidst easing global trade concerns.
Sterling has begun to walk back some of its gains this morning however, with GBP/EUR sliding to €1.1223, GBP/USD retreating to $1.3228 and GBP/CAD dipping to C$1.7070. Meanwhile GBP/AUD and GBP/NZD are both falling, striking AU$1.8135 and NZ$1.9762 respectively.
Looking ahead to today’s session the Eurozone’s latest PMI figures are likely to be in focus, with the euro potentially slipping if the numbers show growth in the bloc’s private sector continued to slow this month.

Currencies DirectThe pound ended up trading narrowly on Friday, with a doom-laden Brexit prognostication from Bank of England Governor Mark Carney leaving the currency at a standstill.
Sterling looks set to continue this trend at the start of this week’s session, with GBP/EUR muted at €1.1240, GBP/USD flat at $1.3081 and GBP/CAD stalling at C$1.7051, while GBP/AUD and GBP/NZD are both holding steady at AU$1.8273 and NZ$1.9950 respectively.
Looking ahead, the publication of the Eurozone’s final CPI reading for August looks set to be the only data release of note, with the euro potentially weakening if inflation is confirmed to have slowed last month.

currencies4youThe last week was volatile for the Pound, especially due to comments made in regard to Brexit negotiations from Germany, basically saying that they were happy to “Simplify” talks to ensure a deal gets done- what was even more interesting is this comment was then denied by the German Government which sent the Pound lower again.

We finished the week on high following comments from Michel Barnier in regard to the Irish Border- and though things look slightly more positive in comparison to a few weeks ago, we wouldn’t expect the GBPEUR rate to hit 1.20 yet…

brexitLenA series of Blevins Franks seminars will look at the small window of certainty we have before the Brexit due date of 29 March 2019 and what actions UK nationals living in or moving to Portugal are taking now to protect themselves.

The seminars are supported by Russell Investments' Chief Investment Officer, Gerard Fitzpatrick, who will provide insight into current investment market issues and the implications of 'deal or no deal' Brexit.

Pound exchange rates jump on Brexit deal optimismThe pound got off to a strong start this week, as the currency was sent higher once again following fresh comments from the EU’s chief negotiator Michel Barnier regarding Brexit.
Sterling appears to be consolidating these gains this morning with GBP/EUR steady at €1.1219, GBP/USD edging up to at $1.3060 and GBP/CAD stable at C$1.7188, while GBP/AUD and GBP/NZD hold at AU$1.8356 and NZ$1.9999 respectively.
Looking ahead, the release of the UK’s latest employment figures could lend further strength to the pound later this morning if domestic wage growth has risen in July in line with market expectations…

Currencies DirectSigns of progress regarding Brexit saw the pound close last week’s session on a high as markets welcomed comments by the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier.
For now, Sterling is holding steady at the start of this week’s session with GBP/EUR muted at €1.1185, GBP/USD flat at $1.2917, while GBP/AUD and GBP/NZD are holding steady at AU$1.8179 and NZ$1.9794 respectively. Only GBP/CAD is showing any positive movement so far this week as the pairing ticks up to C$1.7034.
Looking ahead, the UK will publish its latest trade and production figures this morning, with the pound potentially advancing should they print higher than forecast.
