TD Securities Assuming "smooth conclusion" of furlough, expect 15bp hike in Aug22 and 25bp hike in Nov22 which will trigger an "organic reduction" in the BOE balance sheet.
Berenberg Expect two hikes in 2022: 15bp hike in Aug22 and 25bp hike in Dec22. "However, the risks to this call are increasingly tilting towards a hike as soon as May."
