BLS Members have chance to quiz Bank of England representative


The Bank of England’s Financial Stability Report is published twice a year under the auspices of the Financial Policy Committee. It covers the Committee’s assessment of the outlook for the stability and resilience of the financial sector, and the policy actions it advises to reduce and mitigate risks to stability.

 

As the UK economy finally approaches its pre-crisis peak, members of the Monetary Policy Committee ponder the upward path of interest rates, and there is widespread media coverage of the state of the housing market, the next Financial Stability Report, to be published on 26th June, could hardly be more topical.

 

We are delighted, therefore, to announce that Simon Hallfrom the Bank of England will be in Bristol to talk about the new Financial Stability Report on 8th July from 12.30 to 2pm at the Marriott Royal Hotel, College Green, Bristol BS1 5TA.

 

Simon heads up the policy teams that support the Financial Policy Committee and also the Bank’s input to the European Systemic Risk Board, where much EU-wide financial policy is formulated. He could not be better placed to explain this complex yet fundamental area of policy and regulation.

 

You are invited to join Simon, and his colleagues from the Bank’s Agency for the South West, for a presentation on the Financial Stability Report and then a question-and-answer session. Light refreshments will be served.

 

Attendance is free and you are asked to pre-register by e-mailing southwest@bankofengland.co.uk by 1st July with the following details
