This paper investigates whether financial markets stability matters in setting monetary policy in the case of the European Central Bank and Bank of England. We show that our Tri-mandate Taylor rule better explains the deviations of the observed policy rate from the implied interest rates for both central banks. The forward-looking version shows that the monetary policy conducted by the ECB is largely affected by the US financial market stability, while only the domestic financial market stability affects the BOE. Lastly, we show that the preferences of monetary policy makers have shifted in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis.
