UK Pound strengthens following the Prime Minister's resignation

7th July 2022

Reacting to the announcement of the Prime Minister’s resignation, Trevor Greetham, Head of Multi Asset at Royal London Asset Management said:

“The pound strengthened markedly on news that Boris Johnson resigned as Conservative Party leader. An uncertain leadership election with no clear front runner ought to be a source of uncertainty for financial markets, but a continuation of the chaotic scenes of recent weeks was arguably worse.”
