Autumn Statement 2023 Preview - Short-term political gain worsens long-term fiscal pain

With the government still languishing far behind in the opinion polls and an election required before the end of January 2025, the Chancellor, Jeremy Hunt, is under more pressure than ever to pull something out of the bag at the Autumn Statement on Wednesday 22nd November. But the Chancellor will present his third (and possibly last!) fiscal event against a weak economic backdrop. The result may be a fiscal announcement that neither significantly boosts the government’s standing in the polls or the economy.

We’ll be discussing the UK macro and market consequences of the Chancellor’s Autumn statement at 10:00 EST/15:00 GMT on 22nd November. Register here for this 20-minute online briefing.
