Current Challenges Faced by Central Banks

25 January 2018 - 8:00am to 9:15am

Chatham House, London


Claudio Borio, Head of the Monetary and Economic Department , Bank for International Settlements



Central banks are increasingly required to juggle a range of complex and sometimes conflicting functions. Since the financial crisis of 2008, central banks have focused on stimulating economic growth and providing liquidity while containing inflation and safeguarding against financial system instability and the threat of future crises.

Claudio Borio will outline the challenges central banks are currently facing and the future of monetary policy framework. How will new technology and innovations such as fintech and blockchain affect financial stability, regulation and governance?  To what degree should financial stability considerations be included in central banks’ remits? And what is the future of international cooperation and regulatory convergence in governing the global financial system?

To enable as open a debate as possible, this event will be held under the Chatham House Rule. 

This event is only open to Major Corporate Member and Partner organizations of Chatham House. If you would like to register your interest, please RSVP to Linda Bedford. We will contact you to confirm your attendance.
