United Kingdom : BoE Inflation Report  
Definition
The Quarterly Inflation Report (QIR) is produced by the Bank of England (BoE) every February, May, August and November. The publication updates the central bank's assessment of recent economic developments at home and abroad and sets out the latest official forecasts for growth and inflation. As such, it provides the economic underpinnings for any change in monetary policy made by the Bank's Monetary Policy Committee (MPC). Details of the QIR are released at the same time as the BoE makes its policy announcement.

Why Investors Care
For analysts who want to know the Monetary Policy Committee's latest thinking on the economy, the Inflation Report is must reading. The Report starts with an overview of economic developments; this is followed by five sections which include analysis of money and asset prices; analysis of demand; analysis of output and supply; analysis of costs and prices and assessment of the medium-term inflation prospects and risks. The Bank of England's governor holds a press conference to discuss the report.
