Central Banking Awards 2019-2020

Recognising excellence in the central banking community

The workload of the central banking community has remained at heightened levels since the advent of the global financial crisis, with central banks taking on new responsibilities despite many facing tough budget constraints. Yet much of this vital work is not recognised. 

The Central Banking Awards were set up to redress the balance – to highlight the outstanding performance and achievements of individuals and organisations within the central banking community.

The past year is no exception. Central banks have had to reinforce their role as trusted institutions against a backdrop of expanded mandates and populist policies. Some advanced economy central banks have had to pause and consider reversing monetary tightening, with associated effects on portfolios flows. Meanwhile, ongoing efforts to make global regulation more efficient need to occur without allowing standards to slip. And central banks are embracing fintech disruptions while tackling associated cybersecurity and other risks.

The awards recognise: 

  • Extraordinary examples of public service

  • Pioneering activities in the central banking community

  • Best practice in policy, governance, economics and management 

  • Innovative and best practice in service provision by market practitioners 

The awards will take place on March 19, 2020 in Brussels where winners will be presented with their award at the annual Central Banking Awards gala dinner.
