The Bank of England raised its main Bank Rate by 25bps to 1.25% during its June 2022 meeting, a fifth consecutive rate hike and pushing borrowing costs to the highest in 13 years as it tries to temper soaring inflation. Still, three policymakers voted for a bigger 50bps increase and the central bank raised its commitment to bring inflation back to the 2% target and 'act forcefully' if necessary. The central bank now expects inflation to be over 9% during the next few months and to rise to slightly above 11% in October while GDP growth is seen slowing sharply over the first half of the forecast period. source: Bank of England
