Why is the Bank of England cutting interest rates this year? This is the money podcast


The Bank of England once again kept its key interest rate at 5.25 per cent, its fourth successive hold – but this time, it was a real split by Monetary Policy Committee members.

So, when will we start to see interest rates fall – and will inflation really reach the 2 per cent target by April?

This week Simon Lambert, Lee Boyce and Georgie Frost discuss what another interest rate pause means for you – and what it means for savings and mortgage rates, along with investors.

We also go back to school and take a maths lesson from Mr. Lambert to reveal the six real-world accounts you should have in your arsenal to improve your financial health.
