Has UK inflation peaked or will it continue to rise?

Ketan Patel, fund manager at EdenTree Investment Management, believes the upward trajectory of inflation, especially post-Brexit, will ensure the debate on living standards will be at the top of the political agenda in the run up to the general election in June. He tells FE Trustnet that the level of sterling will be a key determinant on consumer prices, a sentiment echoed by the Bank of England last week, which warned on rising inflation and falling real wages.
