Economists from our UK Economics team held a briefing ahead of the MPC’s November meeting to discuss why we think that rates will rise further than most analysts are expecting and the conditions that would be needed for the Bank to shift to a slower pace of tightening – or to stop hiking altogether.
They answered client questions and addressed the key issues ahead of the Bank’s pronouncements, including:
- How far and fast the Bank will raise rates;
- What the economic outlook means for the UK’s inflation dynamics;
- What it all means for the financial markets.
