The base currency of the GBP/CHF is the British
pound and the quote currency is the Swiss franc. The pair is tempered
by the currencies' economic and geographic proximity.
The Swiss Franc is considered a benchmark safe haven currency due to its history as a refuge for wealthy individuals from foreign shores looking to safe guard capital. In turn, the British Pound is one of the premier reserve currencies and represents the world's largest financial center, as well as one of the strongest world economies.
