The UK has been criticised for its choice of currency since Brexit and there has been speculation that the country might go the way of Canada and Mexico.
However, a new survey suggests that the UK is now the preferred currency of its citizens, with 58% of respondents saying they would rather use the British pound than the euro.
The survey was carried out by ComRes and involved more than 2,500 people aged 18 and over in the UK.
It was carried to see which countries were most popular in terms of their use of their national currencies.
According to ComRes, the UK was the most popular currency in the country, with 51% of the respondents saying that they would prefer to use the pound.
In second place was the Netherlands (39%), followed by Spain (32%), Portugal (26%) and France (24%).
The UK came in third, with 27% saying they preferred the euro, and 10% said they would switch to a British pound.
The survey showed that there was no significant difference between the British and Dutch respondents.
The most common reason given for switching to the pound was to avoid the high costs of the pound compared with other currencies.
The UK’s decision to leave the European Union has caused concern among economists, with a number of analysts saying that the decision to sever ties with the European Central Bank would lead to a rise in the price of the British currency.
The price of sterling has been on a rollercoaster ride in recent months and is now in a bear market, with the pound trading at around 20% below its level when it was last at the height of the Brexit campaign.
However, the survey shows that most respondents are confident that the pound will be around the level it was before Brexit.
“The UK is the preferred financial centre of the world.
People will be able to easily convert their euros to pounds and vice versa,” said John O’Donnell, chief economist at ComRes.
ComRes said that it found that the main reasons for switching from the pound to the euro were “cost of living”, “economic uncertainty” and “lack of confidence in the political system”.
“The survey shows how a country can use the UK as a financial centre, and is a useful reference for future discussions about financial inclusion and financial inclusion policy,” said Mr O’Brien.
“The results of the ComRes survey suggest that the financial integration of the UK could be one of the most significant drivers of economic growth and prosperity in the coming years.”
