Christine Lagarde has now resigned as head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) - as widely expected.
"The debate's going to be now who is going to replace her at the IMF," says Laura Foll, fund manager at Janus Henderson Investors. "And one of the names being talked about is possibly Mark Carney."
She says: "Traditionally, the IMF has been headed always by a European."
Mr Carney is Canadian but Ms Foll points out that the Bank of England Governor "does have British and Irish passports which sort of puts him forward for the job effectively but he's just one of a long list of people speculating who it could be."
