Subject:

The subject of the evening will be “An Update on RPI Reform”.

The Chancellor of the Exchequer, Sajid Javid, announced on 4 September 2019 that there will be consultation early in 2020 to replace the retail price index (RPI) with CPIH (consumer price inflation including owner-occupied housing). Replacing RPI with CPIH without compensation would cut pensioners’ future income and could cost holders of index-linked gilts and other RPI-linked assets in excess of £100bn, dwarfing the Brexit bill. Jos Vermeulen, Head of Solution Design, and Robert Gall, Head of Market Strategy, at Insight Investment, will discuss the impact of such a move and highlight the action stakeholders can take in the upcoming consultation by the UK government.

Speakers:

Jos Vermeulen (Head of Solution Design, Insight Investment) and Robert Gall (Head of Market Strategy, Insight Investment)
