Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell speaks during a Tuesday afternoon question-and-answer session with Carlyle Group Chairman David Rubenstein. The event takes place at the Economic Club of Washington, D.C.

The discussion comes less than a week after the Fed raised its benchmark interest rate another quarter of a percentage point to a target range of 4.5% to 4.75%. Following the move, Powell said he saw signs of slowing inflation in the economy, but added the central bank needed to remain on guard.

Markets widely expect the Fed to hike again in March and once again in May before pausing to assess the impact higher rates have on inflation and the economy.
