Episode overview

  • With its package of tax cuts and spending, Chancellor Kwarteng’s mini-budget created turbulence across UK bond and currency markets. The Bank of England acted quickly to calm the situation, but there are questions over whether the fragile truce will hold. The Chancellor has now rowed back from the most controversial elements of his proposals
  • Investors have had to endure further volatility, while also worrying about their household finances as mortgage rates and utility bills rise. But, as Cherry and Ben explore, the environment may not be as fragile as it seems
  • Eventually, inflation will ease, central banks will loosen interest rate policy and markets will revive, even if there is more pain to come. How investors respond to difficult times is important. It is vital to keep an eye on the long term and remember that volatility is part and parcel of investing
