Amid The Possibility Of Interest Hike, Investors Take Cautious Steps, Says Broadbent Of BoE


03/23/2017


BoE’s forecast indicate rises in interest rates while Brexit decision weighs investors’ outlook.



According to Ben Broadbent, the deputy governor of Bank of England, there is a possibility of a hike in the interest rates, while he continued highlighting a “strong sense of caution among investors” that concerns Britain following its decision of Brexit.
 
In Broadbent’s words:
“It's quite possible that interest rates could go up. It's quite possible. Our forecast was conditioned on pretty gentle rises but rises nonetheless”.
 
However, Broadbent also focussed on a “sense of nervousness” regarding the “economic prospect” of Britain which added onto the outlook, while he added:
“We think this caution that is very strongly there in the foreign exchange market will also apply somewhat, quite a bit, to investors, businesses that might otherwise have a powerful incentive to invest in the UK because of this”.
