This annual exchange rate summary provides a detailed breakdown of the performance of the Swiss franc against the British pound over the past several years so you can put today's Swiss franc buyback rates into context:
Exchange rates can be displayed in different ways depending on the context. There's the Swiss franc to pound exchange rate, and the Swiss franc buyback rate. The two are in fact the same; they are just displayed differently.
The Swiss franc to pound exchange rate corresponds to the value of one Swiss franc in British pounds. For example, a Swiss franc to pound rate of 0.8696 means one Swiss franc is worth 0.8696 pounds.
In contrast, the Swiss franc buyback rate corresponds to the amount of Swiss francs you'd have to exchange to get one pound. For example, a Swiss franc buyback rate of 1.15 means you'd have to exchange 1.15 Swiss francs to get one pound.
UK currency suppliers prefer to show the Swiss franc buyback rate instead of the Swiss franc to pound exchange rate, so we follow the same format in our Swiss franc comparisons. However, on this page, we use the Swiss franc to pound exchange rate since this is what the data is intended to show.
The two rates are interchangeable: to convert the Swiss franc buyback rate into the actual Swiss franc to pound rate, just divide 1 by the Swiss franc buyback rate, e.g.: 1 / 1.15 = 0.8696.
