Ten Years on from the last UK Interest Rate Rise

Geoff Riley

5th July 2017

It is now a decade since the Bank of England last raised their policy interest rate but a decade on from that decision, the UK and global economy is in a very different place. According to Chris Giles from the FT, even small rate rises from 0.25% to 0.5% might have a significant impact - key to this view is the staggeringly high level of household debt.
