Brexit and the role of currencies from a UK perspective

Bogleheads • View forum - Investing - Theory, News & General - www.bogleheads.org
As a UKian, something odd is happening to our portfolio post Brexit vote.

Being well diversified internationally (US only investors please note), the value of our international holdings have increased when recorded in £Sterling. The result is apparent portfolio gains,unlike the US situation.

We are therefore obliged to sell down to a degree those international holdings, to rebalance!

Yes, we are worse off in absolute terms with the £Sterling currency depreciation.

But that is not showing up on our spreadsheet!

Does anyone have any idea on any other way this anomaly might be tackled ?
