He was also a Visiting Professor at both Harvard University and MIT.

Since leaving the Bank, King has written two acclaimed books: The End of Alchemy and (with John Kay) Radical Uncertainty.

In the House of Lords, he sits as a Crossbench Life Peer with the title of The Lord King of Lothbury KG GBE. King was also appointed a Knight of the Garter by Queen Elizabeth II in 2014.
