Jonathan is a Senior Economist at the Bank, currently working in the Financial Stability department. His focus is on developing the FPC’s Macroprudential framework and strategy.  Previously, Jonathan spent six years working on monetary policy.  First, in the analysis of credit conditions and unconventional policy following the financial crisis.  Second, in constructing and presenting the MPC’s UK economic forecast.
