LONDON (Reuters) – Bank of England Governor Mark Carney mentioned on Thursday there have been many ways in which the eventual consequence of Britain’s divorce with the European Union might end in larger rates of interest.

“There’s a wide range of Brexit outcomes, but in many of them, interest rates will be at least as high as they are today. So we don’t need to keep our powder dry for that,” Carney informed a news conference after the BoE raised charges to a brand new post-crisis excessive of zero.75 p.c.
“The mistake is to always wait, wait, wait, until you have perfect certainty because we don’t know when that higher degree of certainty is going to transpire.”
