AAT Birmingham Branch welcome Mr Graeme Chaplin of the Bank of England, who will be giving us a summary of the Bank’s latest economic outlook and its implications for monetary policy. Graeme will also be providing an overview of the role of the Bank of England and answering : how does the Bank achieve monetary and financial stability?

Graeme is the Bank’s Regional Agent for the West Midlands & Oxfordshire.

The role of the Bank’s regional Agencies is to act as information gatherers for the Bank’s Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) and Financial Policy Committee (FPC).   To this end, the Agents meet regularly with contacts from across the business community to assess the current state of the economic environment.  This information plays an important role in the policy decisions of the MPC and FPC.

Graeme joined the Bank in 1992.  He has undertaken a variety of roles in Threadneedle Street, including banking supervision, economic analysis and financial stability monitoring.  From 2001 to 2008 he was the Bank’s Deputy Agent for North West England.
