Pacific Exchange Rate Service

Sauder School of Business • University of British Columbia
A service for academic research and teaching provided by Prof. Werner Antweiler at UBC's Sauder School of Business since 1996.
About this Service

This service was introduced on February 2, 1996, to provide a free and continuously updated repository of exchange rate data for academic research and teaching. This service is made possible through resources provided by the Sauder School of Business. It is operated and maintained solely by Professor Werner Antweiler.
     The earliest historical exchange rates start in 1971, roughly the time when the Bretton Woods system of fixed exchange rates dissolved. However, for many currencies data are only available for the time period after the introduction of this service. Exchange rates for the IMF's Special Drawing Rights are derived from the constituent currencies of the SDR. The time series for the Euro and the ECU have been amalgamated. Prior to January 1, 1999, the Euro time series contains ECU data, not Euro pseudo exchange rates.
     More information can be found on the web page with frequently asked questions. This service is mostly automated and data are not actively scrutinized for any inaccuracies or errors. Please report any anomalies to me as via email. Any suggestions for improvements are always welcome. As the audience of this service is the academic community, data available on this service should not be used for any commercial purposes.
