Best currency to hold CASH

Currently I hold all my CASH in CHF and now I am planning to exchange a percentage (30%) of my cash into another currency. In your opinion which is better GBP, EUR or USD?

Not interested in investing in anything, just want to hold CASH

If that's your only goal, then any non-CHF currency is ok!
