Goes Down the Pound

By Hetal Mehta

Brexit hasn't even happened yet but it is already affecting the economy, creating volatility in the GDP data. With the data for the second quarter of 2019 being released, I spoke to Bloomberg about what is going on and whether the weakness in sterling will boost exports.

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.
