Charlotte Hogg Quits as Bank of England's Deputy Governor

The Bank of England's newly appointed deputy governor has resigned after coming under fire for breaking the Bank's code of conduct by failing to declare that her brother worked for Barclays. Charlotte Hogg offered her resignation last week. Ms. Hogg had apologised to the committee for not formally disclosing that her brother, Quintin, was Barclays' group strategy director, which could conflict with her work on the Prudential Regulation Committee (PRC).

Bank of England Announces Executive Changes

CHARLOTTE Hogg has been appointed as a deputy governor to the Bank of England just as the rate setting Monetary Policy Committee's Kristin Forbes prepares to complete her three-year term in June. Hogg will take up the role on 1 March 2017 and will replace Minouche Shafik when she leaves at the end of this month to become director of the London School of Economics. The Treasury announced the appointment of Hogg to one of the Bank's top roles for a renewable five-year term. She will also take a seat on the bank's interest rate setting committee. Hogg became the Bank's first chief operating officer in 2013, tasked with running day-to-day operations, but without a formal role in monetary policy decisions.
