Mark Carney, the former central banker who is now head of impact investing at Brookfield Asset Management Inc., isn’t entering Canadian politics just yet.

The former governor of both the Bank of Canada and Bank of England won’t be a candidate for Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Party in an election the prime minister is expected to call in coming weeks, Carney said in a tweet Tuesday. The news was first reported by the Canadian Press.
