Podcast: The Fed holds firm

By Ben Bennett

Inflation is controlling almost every narrative in the Western world - from policymakers' decisions to voting in the US midterms. But in China it's a different story. Ben Bennett explains.


Why is the Fed so determined to stay the course on interest rates? Have we reached peak US inflation? And why have Chinese investors experienced so much volatility? Ben Bennett, Head of Investment Strategy & Research, explains all.

The episode is available on Apple,  Spotify and Audioboom. It is hosted by Frances Watson, Content Manager, and was recorded on 7 November.

Ben focuses on investment ideas and themes. He spends a lot of time on the 4Ds of fixed income investing: debt, deficits, demographics and deflation. This might be more than a little influenced by his first-hand experience of a credit crisis, having joined us from Lehman Brothers in 2008.
