Interest Rate Hikes Will Persist
Central banks around the globe have continued to raise interest rates in an effort to counter elevated inflation. Notably, Switzerland emerged from a negative rate with a 75 basis point hike to 0.50% and Sweden's Riksbank with a 100 basis point hike to 1.75%. Today, the Bank of England raised by 50 basis points to 2.25%, the highest level in 14 years. You can count on these recent, and future, rate hikes to persist and continue slowing economic growth for the foreseeable future. Although savings account rates will be higher, you still don't get a high enough rate to beat inflation. The impact of the hikes on pocketbooks are emerging as costlier credit cards, car loans and mortgages.
