Disclaimer. The following thread does not constitute financial advice. Before making any investment you should consult a professional financial adviser.
The first thing you need to do is invest it in non-Sterling denominated assets.
@Jacob_Rees_Mogg ‘s firm has a few funds, all investing $8.4billion in such assets, so ask him if you’re not sure.
He knows all about this.
And let’s suppose that you get 2 Wongas to the Pound. W2=£1. The rate doesn’t matter.
So now you’ve got W200million in stocks denominated in Wonga currency.
Sterling fell from €1.30 in June 16 to €1.08 in August 17, a 17% fall, and at that point nothing had really changed.
No-deal is the best.
But let’s not be too greedy, and just assume a 20% fall.
So now, where £1 used to by 2 Wongas, now it only buys 1.6 Wonga.
As Sterling falls, your Wonga assets are going up relatively speaking. A 20% fall in Sterling means 1 Wonga was worth 50p, but is now worth 62.5p!
So your W200million stocks overnight are now worth £125Million!
A 20% fall in the value of Sterling makes your Wonga denominated stocks (and every other currency) worth 25% more *overnight*!
Fantastic news isn’t it!
So much easier than running a real business to make an honest profit any day!
Don’t forget, a 20% fall in Sterling means you’ll be 25% better off in £ afterwards.
A 50% fall *doubles* your money!!!
It may take a while mind.
Finding an ally who’s not frightened to spread racist propaganda will help.
So if anyone asks, just blame your no deal Brexit on EU intransigence.
