Bank of England governor Mark Carney’s decision to stay at the helm of the UK’s central bank has been welcomed by Virgin Money.

Jayne-Anne Gadhia, chief executive of Virgin Money, told The Guardian she was glad that Carney had chose to stay at the Bank until June 2019.

She added that Carney showed leadership following the EU referendum and was right to express his view on Brexit.

She told The Guardian: “Thank goodness for that would be my comment.

“When I think back to 24 June when an awful lot of people wondered who was leading the country I was pretty relieved when Mark Carney stepped up and was sensible. We need stability going forward.

“How difficult to have a job where we are all able to comment [on Carney’s performance].

“When you take on a big role like that you have to be a public figure and expect to have public comment. I don’t criticise people for making the comments they have made. I do think now he is here we should let him get on with his job. Hopefully that will add to the stability of the country.”
