It’s been a turbulent two weeks for the British economy, with Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng’s ‘mini-budget’ sending sterling plummeting, gilt yields soaring and prompting an intervention from the Bank of England that successfully brought yields down.

As the dust settles, what conclusions can investors draw – and where next for UK fiscal and monetary policy?


Andrew Lowry, European Content Manager at LGIM, sits down with Senior European Economist Hetal Mehta to take stock of a dramatic fortnight on the markets.

Listen in on Apple,  Spotify and Audioboom.

Senior European Economist

Hetal is an economist with a focus on the UK and Europe. She has worked for HM Treasury, Oxford Economics and Daiwa Capital Markets, but her real claim to fame is sharing a stage with Sir Ian McKellen. This love for drama is just as well given the excitement of keeping tabs on [insert latest European country]-xit. Away from work, you'll either find Hetal concocting culinary masterpieces (!) or punching the lights out at a HIIT class.
