Select ticket type

The result of the EU referendum in June has led to significant change in the political and economic landscape of the United Kingdom. In the immediate aftermath of the Brexit vote, the Bank of England stepped in to provide reassurance and minimise uncertainty. Amid the din of reaction and comment, Bank of England Governor Mark Carney was on hand to calm the nerves of the markets and emphasise the Bank’s preparedness for the new economic reality.  

With the impact of Brexit set to be felt in the months and years to come, this year’s Bank of England update will provide ICAS members with invaluable insights into the key economic issues raised by the vote. Raakhi Odedra, Deputy Agent for Scotland, will provide an “off the record” update on the current economic outlook based on the Bank of England’s forecasts.

This event is being held jointly with the Bank of England and will incorporate the Bank’s quarterly Inflation Report Briefing.
