The in-person lecture is open to staff, students, businesses and members of the public.

Dr Kim Kaivanto from LUMS’ Department of Economics said: “We are delighted that Sarah has agreed to host an upcoming public lecture at our Management School. The UK economy is currently facing so many pressures and challenges - from inflation, surging energy prices and Net Zero commitments to sanctions on trade and financial dealings with Russia-linked organisations.

“While the country is facing such economic uncertainty, it will be fascinating to hear about Sarah’s experience as a seasoned financial-stability expert. I am certain we will all learn a lot –I hope many people will seize the opportunity to attend.”
