Our monthly Economic Review is intended to provide background to recent developments in investment markets. The bulletin also gives an indication of how some key issues could impact in the future.
In February, the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) announced an increase in its main interest rate for the second meeting in a row as the Bank continues to grapple with a rapid rise in the cost of living.
In our economic update this month we look at the Bank of England’s decision and data indicating rising inflationary pressures over the next 12 months. We then look back on the economic data for the UK and some of the positives to come out of 2021. The Russian invasion in the Ukraine has understandably impacted on all markets and we look at these preliminary figures in our market section. Finally we run through pay levels and the rising cost of Government Debt.
Our update this month includes the following headlines:
- Interest rates risk again
- Signs of economic resurgence
- Pay levels fall in real terms
- Government debt costs rising
