    Recording | To Hike or Not to Hike: Stress testing potential Bank of England rate raises

    After an unprecedented 8.5-year period of near-zero interest rates, it looks like the Bank of England (BoE) is finally preparing to raise its base rate from the current level of 0.25%. Following more than three months of conflicting, confusing and contradictory signals from rate-setters, the market consensus is now for a 25-basis point increase at the November 2 Monetary Policy Committee meeting. In this webinar, Christoph V. Schon, Axioma's Executive Director of Applied Research, explored a number of historical scenarios of previous BoE rate hikes and analyzed the potential impact on a multi-asset class model portfolio.
