Commenting on how UK CPI inflation has reached its highest rate for two-and-a-half years, Shilen Shah, Bond Strategist at Investec Wealth & Investment, said: “Despite the headline CPI coming in slightly below consensus in January at 1.8% (consensus: 1.9%), there are clear signs that inflationary pressures are building in the UK economy with import prices increasing by 20% y-o-y, with crude oil leading the charge. The Bank of England’s currently neutral stance is significantly supported by its latest estimate about the amount of spare capacity in the economy, however if the path of CPI is stronger than it currently estimates, we may eventually see a stronger reaction from the central bank.”
