Since the beginning of the year, the Pound has fallen to its lowest level in seven years against the Dollar, and its lowest level in more than a year against the Euro. In the event of a Brexit, HSBC forecasts that the Pound could fall by up to 20% against the Dollar due to the uncertainty the UK economy would face, with other global banks expressing similar sentiments.1
