Iain Lindsay, co-head of global portfolio management within the global fixed income team at Goldman Sachs Asset Management, said "today's rate hike is a significant, albeit not an unexpected move". Economy is doing fine: Expected GDP growth rate of 7.4 per cent for the year is a sign of a strong economy. The mistake they made was cutting rates in response to the Brexit vote.
