A central bank, reserve bank, or monetary authority is an institution that manages a nation’s currency, money supply, international reserves and interest rates. Our Central Bank and Reserve Funds Summit delegates will discuss their monetary policy and reserve management asset allocation approaches in addition to their outlook for global financial markets. ‎Since the Global Financial Crisis, central banks’ balance sheets have grown significantly, with current estimates pointing to cumulative central bank assets in excess of $20 trillion. Even though usually clubbed together, not all central banks are alike and many differ profoundly in monetary policy and reserve management investment mandates. However, all central banks have an important role in macroeconomic management and global financial stability.
