How does the British pound trade against the Brazilian real historically?

The oldest actively traded currency on the forex market, the British pound has a rich history. The modern Brazilian real was more recently introduced in 1994, when it replaced the old cruzeiro real. The introduction of the Brazilian real was part of a substantial monetary reform package to put an end to three decades of aggressive inflation. At the time of its introduction, the Brazilian real was 1:1 with the US dollar and 1.531964 per British pound.

In 1999, the Brazilian real suffered a sudden devaluation when it reached 3.349984 per pound and continued weakening until it reached an average of 5.340115 per pound in 2004. The real made a partial recovery, dropping to 2.681208 per pound in 2011 until the domestic economic crisis of 2015. The British pound thrived during the Brazilian economic crisis with an exchange rate of 5.9 BRL = 1 GBP.

Since 2015, the real has been made a gradual recovery. Brexit — or Britain’s proposed exit from the European Union — in June 2016 helped its recovery. In June 2016 the real averaged 4.900208 per pound, dropping to 4.300524 per pound in July 2016. Since Brexit, the British pound has weakened against the Brazilian real, reaching under 4.0 to the real in 2017.
