Mexico: Banxico – A more hawkish tone suggests the hiking cycle will continue

  • In a split decision, Banxico decided to hike the reference rate by 25bps to 4.75%. The dissenter was Gerardo Esquivel

  • The statement had a more hawkish tone given the tally of the vote and changes to the inflation outlook

  • We reiterate our call of two more 25bps hikes in 2021, to 5.25%. For 2022, we see the rate by year-end at 6.00%
