Carney said the BoE has taken steps to reduce the negative impacts of Brexit on UK markets. He warned policy makers that the EU faces greater financial risks from Brexit than Britain does. His statement contradicted the BoE’s previous opinion back in June that Brexit would be the biggest risk to UK financial stability, which sends the pound sterling to the 3-month low.
