  • The Bank of England’s Market Intelligence function gathers information from financial market participants, providing insights that feed into the Bank’s operations and policy decisions of the Monetary Policy Committee, the Financial Policy Committee and the Prudential Regulation Committee.
  • Market intelligence provides value to the Bank’s analysis by going beyond the quantitative data and getting under the surface to the qualitative interpretations and nuances that might not be obvious from publicly available data alone.
  • Two case studies demonstrate how market intelligence is used to inform the Bank’s policymaking process.
