Act Now – Interest Rates Could Go Over 2%

Central banks are struggling to contain inflation with many expecting it to peak at more than 11% in October when the energy price cap is increased by Ofgem.
This energy rate increase is set to impact average household energy bills with forecasters reporting annual figures of around £3,200.

Inflation has been further fuelled by demand for goods and rising costs of fuel, the Bank of England has already raised rates five times in a row since December 2021 from the low of 0.1 per cent adopted during the pandemic to a 13-year high of 1.25 per cent. 

And according to a member of the Bank of England’s rate-setting Monetary Policy Committee. Interest rates could reach 2% or more in the next year.
