Pound's Rise After New UK Finance Minister Appointed Might Prove
0828 GMT - Sterling's gains after Nadhim Zahawi was appointed
U.K. Treasury chief after the resignation of Rishi Sunak might not
last, RBC Capital Markets says. In the very short term, the rise of
populism would be seen as ushering in looser fiscal policy and

Adam Cole writes. "But longer-term, with the U.K. imbalances coming
back to the fore (not least the 8% of GDP current account deficit)
it is not at all clear this would be the right reaction." GBP/USD
rises 0.3% to 1.1981 and EUR/GBP falls 0.4% to 0.8567. Sunak and
U.K. Health Secretary Sajid Javid resigned Tuesday in protest of
Prime Minister Boris Johnson's leadership. (email@example.com)
