Bank of England implement emergency cut in interest rates

The Bank of England (BoE) has implemented an emergency cut in interest rates by 50 basis points in an attempt to stave off the “economic shock” of the coronavirus.

The Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) followed in the footsteps of the US Federal Reserve, among others, voting unanimously at a special meeting to slash the Bank Rate to 0.25%.

The BoE said the cut would “help to support business and consumer confidence at a difficult time, to bolster the cash flows of businesses and households, and to reduce the cost, and to improve the availability, of finance”.
