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 17, 2020 in Brussels where winners will be presented with their award at the annual Central Banking Awards gala dinner.
