Higher Bank Rate forecast, but peak in sight

Despite the softer tone of the CPI inflation data for June released earlier today, we have raised our forecast for the peak in Bank Rate. Rather than rise from 5.00% currently to a peak of 5.25%, we now think Bank Rate will peak at 5.50%. That’s a bit lower than the peaks envisaged by the consensus (5.75%) and current market pricing (5.75-6.00%). The bigger difference is that we think Bank Rate will be cut faster and further than market pricing from the back end of 2024 and in 2025.
