Map of the Month - July

Currency exchange rate trends in Europe

This month’s map from GfK GeoMarketing reveals trends in currency exchange rates from June 2008 to June 2009 among those countries in Europe that have not adopted the euro. According to the data supplied by the European Central Bank, the only currency that has developed positively against the euro in this period is the Swiss franc.

By contrast, Poland's currency has undergone a devaluation of more than 25 percent since June 2008. The currencies of Great Britain, Norway, Sweden, Russia and southeastern European countries have also fared poorly against the euro, with losses between seven and 16 percent over the previous year.

GfK retail expert Olaf Petersen comments: "These unfavorable developments amongst some European currencies against the euro have resulted in additional pressure in the international retail real estate sector, burdening it with numerous elements of uncertainty."
