The Central Banking Awards returned to London on March 3rd 2016. Hosted at The Waldorf Hilton Hotel, 18 Awards celebrated the contributions central bankers and stakeholders make to central banks, central banking and national economies.
Launched in 2014, the Awards have become a fixture in the community's calendar, recognising as they do the diversity, significance and specialisms of central banking in today's global, interconnected economy.
The Awards acknowledge the unique contribution central banks make to the welfare of their countries and the contribution services providers and partners make to furthering good practice within the profession. Winners demonstrate significant resolve and leadership in addressing the problems facing the monetary and financial system. The awards represent a celebration of achievement and hopefully an inspiration for others to strive further.
In turn, Central Banking Publications, we are delighted that central bankers themselves embraced these Awards as the industry standard, with Journal articles explaining and describing the award and a ceremony to present the awards.
Now in its 25th year of independent and informed reporting, analysis and comment, the editorial team and advisory board of the Central Banking Journal will be judging the Awards later this year.
