Ahead of the European Central Bank and Federal Reserve meetings happening later this month, we invited Chris and Ben to the podcast to discuss central banks’ reversal of their quantitative easing programmes – a process also known as quantitative tightening – and the impact it’s had on markets. They talk us through the monetary policy in practice and highlight the slightly different ways the LGIM investment teams see the situation.

Ben Bennett, Head of Investment Strategy and Research
Chris Jeffery, Strategist, Asset Allocation
