I live in the UK and have a portfolio of shares denominated in GBP (and some in USD).
In the next 1-3 years, I may move to Europe, and with Brexit looming, I would like to make sure that my investments, when realised and converted into Euros, keep (or increase:) their value.
I think Brexit may (will?) reduce the value of GBP vs EUR, so I'm wondering what options I have. Bear in mind, I might decide not to move to Europe after all, so need to consider that too.
As far as I can think, options are: - buy a forward or similar, to lock the current GBP-EUR value. - Invest everything in EUR or USD denominated shares, which should appreciate if GBP goes down. - sell all shares I have, and convert the proceeds to EUR
..anything else? does any of the above have particularly good pros (of bad cons) that I should consider?
