BOE chief Carney hints at rate rise


With consumer confidence in tatters, inflation at 2,9%, and the slowest growth in the European Union (0,2%), the Bank of England is preparing to unwind its stimulus programme. Among the requirements in that report: United Kingdom banks must increase their capital buffers to protect themselves against myriad risks, including Brexit and an overall increase in consumer borrowing.

His comments echoed that of Governor Mark Carney's last week but came in contrast to that of the Bank's chief economist, Andy Haldane, who signalled that he was ready to vote for a rate increase "relatively soon".

Unsecured credit rose £1.7bn in the month, against City predictions of a £1.4bn increase. The BOE opted for a staggered approach because it's less likely to result in banks tightening lending in response.

Carney sent the pound higher against major currencies - including the euro and the dollar - after saying continued growth in the United Kingdom economy would eventually lead to higher interest rates.

Sterling erased its post-election losses and rose against most of its 16 major peers Thursday after Carney appeared to rein back on some of his rhetoric from last week when he suggested that he was firmly placed among the other doves on the MPC.

Quoted in the Daily Telegraph, Carney said that the economy was performing but warned that there were risks as consumer credit continued to grow by more than 10% per year.

The overall risks from United Kingdom exposures are at "neither particularly elevated nor subdued", according to the BOE.

On Tuesday, the Bank raised fears over levels of consumer borrowing, as it announced plans that will see banks build up their capital buffers.

It added that vehicle finance differed from most other forms of consumer finance because it was secured and therefore carried less risk.

But there are "pockets of risk that warrant vigilance" it said, in the Bank's half-yearly Financial Stability Report,.

The report called on banks to tighten affordability tests for home loans.

Loans to large non-financial businesses increased by £3.5 billion in May, while loans to small and medium-sized enterprises were largely unchanged, the Bank said.

The BOE also said some corporate bonds and United Kingdom commercial real estate appear overvalued because they "do not appear to fully reflect the downside risks that are implied by very low long-term interest rates". Leading gains on both the Dow and the S&P 500 index had been the financial sector following the clearing of the Fed's stress test.

The IMF noted that US President Donald Trump's economic policy proposals were no longer seen as likely to succeed.

"Fragmentation of market-based finance could result in higher costs and greater risks for both European Union and United Kingdom companies and households", the BOE said.
