Monetary Policy Forum (MPF)
Fathom’s Monetary Policy Forum
Our Monetary Policy Forum (MPF) is a quarterly event available by exclusive invitation to UK Service clients. Designed to enhance scrutiny of monetary policy decisions, it provides a rigorous and objective cross-check on the Bank of England and its Monetary Policy Committee. With this in mind, Fathom Consulting launched the MPF in 2009 – bringing together a rotating panel of former Committee members.
Regular panelists include: Dame DeAnne Julius, DCMG, CBE; Sir John Gieve, KCB; Prof Charles Goodhart, CBE; Dr Ian Plenderleith, CBE; Dr Andrew Sentence, CBE; Dr Sushil Wadhwani, CBE; Marian Bell CBE; and Rachel Lomax. Click here for Panelist Biographies.
Following a presentation of Fathom Consulting’s quarterly UK forecast, delivered in the context of our Global Economic Markets Outlook (GEMO), the panel is invited to debate its conclusions, after which the forum is thrown open to the audience offering a rare opportunity to ask the panelists questions.
MPF Roundtables are also hosted on an ad-hoc basis, exclusively for MPF clients, led by VIP guest speakers. These lunchtime discussions, following strict Chatham House, rules bring together thought leaders from across the business, financial and political spectrum – special guests at previous events have included: Dr Vince Cable, Professor Charles Bean, Paul Tucker.
“Since its inaugural event…, [the Monetary Policy Forum] has become a must-attend event in the economic calendar,” according to The Daily Telegraph.
