Alex Brazier, an MSc graduate from the Department of Economics at The University of Warwick has been appointed to the Financial Policy Committee by The Bank of England.

The committee is the body tasked with ensuring the stability of the UK’s financial system. Alex graduated in 2000, before joining the Bank of England the following year as an economist.

His most recent role was principal private secretary to the governor, and previously he managed the UK forecasting team from 2008 to 2011 and was economic assistant and speech writer to the governor from 2005 to 2008.

Alongside the appointment of Alex, Sam Woods was appointed as executive director for insurance supervision, and when discussing the two appointments, Mark Carney, Governor of the Bank of England said that the two men bring:

“unique strengths and varied experience [to their respective roles]. I look forward to working closely with both of them as we continue to transform the bank and fulfil our mission to promote the good of the people of the United Kingdom by maintaining monetary and financial stability”.

The Department of Economics would you like to congratulate and wish Alex luck in his new role.
