The Bank of England (BoE) voted 9-0 to keep the U.K. main interest rate at 0.5 percent — marking the seventh straight year of record-low interest rates.
The BoE's £375 billion ($539 billion) asset-purchasing program, designed to stimulate lending and economic growth, also remained untouched.
But with the economic outlook less rosy than six months' ago, and the likelihood of market volatility in the wake of the U.K. leaving the European Union (EU), the tides could be shifting towards further monetary easing.
Analysts say the BoE could opt to support sterling if the U.K. exited the EU. The currency has already declined by around 1.5 percent against the U.S. dollar after a poll on Tuesday put the outcome of the Brexit vote on June 23 on a knife's edge.
