Minouche Shafik

Director at London School of Economics and Political Sciences

Until February 2017, Minouche Shafik was Deputy Governor for Markets and Banking at the Bank of England, a member of the Monetary Policy Committee, the Financial Policy Committee and the Board of the Prudential Regulation Authority. The defining feature of her work is managing the balance sheet of the central bank at the heart of the leading global financial centre. At this intersection of policymaking and implementation, she is responsible for the design and execution of quantitative easing, and for catalysing reforms to promote the effectiveness of financial markets more broadly. She co-chaired the Fair and Effective Markets Review and led the implementation of reforms to the Bank’s Sterling Monetary Framework, alongside the ongoing modernisation of the UK’s high value payments system.
