Annual Reports

The Reserve Bank is required under the Reserve Bank of New Zealand Act 1989 (ss 163-165) to provide an Annual Report, an annual accountability document, to the Minister of Finance no later than 3 months after the end of the financial year. The Annual Report contains a signed statement from the Governor, as well as the Board’s assessment of the performance of the Bank’s functions and the exercise of its powers. It also contains a summary of key activities, and presentation of the Bank’s financial statements.

The Reserve Bank's Annual Report 2015-16 demonstrates the Bank's commitment to innovation as it continues to promote a sound and dynamic monetary and financial system.
