CARNEY ON PREPAREDNESS OF BANKS FOR BREXIT

“The major (UK) financial institutions have done what’s necessary. We can’t fully insulate ourselves from spillovers from Europe where there still are some things to be done.”

CARNEY ON WHETHER HE WANTS TOP JOB AT IMF

“I think we need to respect the process here…which is she (Christine Lagarde) has been nominated to be president of the ECB…There’s a process to confirm that and then there would be a formal process to select her successor…That process as per the good governance advice of the IMF should be open, transparent and merit based. There’ll come a time when that process launches and that’s probably the right time to answer that question.”
